Maximizing Public Money: Funding for Montessori Programs

Saturday, March 24 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Presenter: Bob Nardo

Target Audience: Public Schools, Administrators

Montessori grant-writers know the challenges of fitting our programs into conventional application boxes, but some public Montessori schools have cracked the code! Come hear about one Montessori charter school that has accessed over $2 million in public grants to support its mission. You’ll learn about approaches, including public policy and advocacy, that have been used to access, maintain, flexibly utilize, and expand public funding for classrooms, facilities, teacher development, and more.
