The Principal Check Book is designed to help schools address the urgent needs of individual children from low-income families within their school. This funding is awarded from the Principal’s Checkbook Fund, a charitable fund provided by the Evergreen School District Foundation.
Each year the Foundation replenishes accounts and provides $300 to each school for the Principal’s to use at their discretion. The Foundation provides approximately $10,000 each year to fund the Principal’s Checkbooks.
Here is a list of some items the checkbook is used for:
- Lunch Tickets
- Personal Hygiene Items
- Activity Fees for Specific Events
- School Supplies
- Summer School
- Some urgent medical/dental
- Sports Physicals
