If your district has at least 35% free/reduced meals, you might want to contact Dr. Art Stellar, former president of the Horace Mann League, who is working with the National Education Foundation who will provide the required 10% match for Federal QZAB (Qualified Zone Academy Bond) funds. Each state has a limited allocation (usually in the millions) on a “first come first served” basis.
First step, review info at the website: http://www.cyberlearning.org or National Education Foundation go to the tab labeled Grants and scroll down to QZAB. Then, if interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the Federal QZAB funds are not used (or used improperly) this funding will be eliminated in 2014. The current leftover funds and funds for 2012 and 2013 are NOT impacted by sequestration reductions.
