Perhaps you want to get a PAL® program started, but you are not sure how your school or district will pay for it?
Or perhaps you think a PAL® Student Training or Conference would be really beneficial to your already thriving PAL® program, but can’t seem to find a way to cover the costs?
Your program may be eligible funded for the following activities:
NCLB Title I, Part A Federal, State Compensatory Education, and NCLB Title I Stimulus
- At Risk Populations
- Drop Out Prevention
- Migrant Populations
- Parent Involvement
- Promote Leadership and Post-Secondary Education
NCLB Title IV, Part A – Safe and Drug-Free Schools:
- Drug Prevention
- Violence Prevention
- Teen Pregnancy
- Alcohol and Tobacco Prevention
- Bully Prevention
- Suicide Prevention
- Character Education
- Parent and Community Involvement
- Promote Protective Factors, Buffers, and Positive Assets
Another common way certified PAL® Schools increase their frequency of receiving PAL® Student Trainings is by sharing the cost of Student Trainings with other Schools/School Districts. For instance, one School or School District will host the Student Training at their location, others join and they all split the fees.
Schools or School Districts sometimes plan similar activities to lower the cost of attending the annual PAL® Leadership Conferences such as share buses.
For annual PAL® Leadership Conferences, there are scholarship opportunities available for students and teachers to apply for. By leading workshops or volunteering as workshop monitors, registration fees can be reduced and/or waived. Applications are available here: http://www.statewidetraining.org/PALcallforpresenter/
Fundraisers, school activity funds, and corporate sponsorships are another popular way to cover the registration and travel costs for Conferences and Student Trainings.
