Old Orchard Service League Policy Statement
Regarding Fund Raising and Disbursements
The primary objectives and purposes of Old Orchard Service League (OOSL) shall be to help provide students at Old Orchard School with means for educational, technological, and charitable assistance, to further their enrichment opportunities. In order to make these provisions, OOSL has initiated a process for requesting funds. A "Grant Request Form" may be obtained from the Forms and Policies link on the right. This form should be filled with as much detail as possible to support the request for funding.
The OOSL Board of Directors will review these requests and discuss them at the monthly meetings. To ensure that grant requests are reviewed at the monthly meetings (first Friday of each month) the requests should be submitted as much in advance of that as possible. Available funds will be dispersed based on a determination of funds available and the relevance to the stated objectives of the Service League. In other words, funding will be provided for items which enhance the educational environment of the school and classrooms, and not for items which are used for improving or repairing facilities without an educational enrichment purpose.
Final funding decisions will be made after discussion and agreement between OOSL representatives and OOS administration. If a grant request is not deemed as being within the charter of the OOSL, and the requester does not agree, additional information should be presented to both the OOS administration and the OOSL Board of Directors to clarify and justify the need.
