In a large district with more than 175 schools, would you receive more than 1 Family Connector?
Kate McDevitt
56:18
Can you speak more to the curriculums?
Lane Brown
56:40
Do I understand correctly that you have to have a large military family population to be eligible?
Denise Dyer
56:44
In a large district that is divided into 17 networks can the district grant target a network instead of the entire district
Grace Perry, AFHK
57:33
Yes, the grant can target a network if your district is larger
Kate McDevitt
57:35
Is there an option that the curriculum be co-created with the district? Our district likes to be involved in this aspect.
Kate McDevitt

Thanks!

I’ve been advocating for digital wellness in my children’s school district for several years after seeing how educators were overusing and misusing iPads in early elementary school (kids not interacting during indoor recess but on iPads instead, etc.). This ties into social emotional connection, physical activity, healthy lifestyle, etc. Educators and parents both need education and training in digital wellness. I am now a digital wellness coach and educator. How could I use your grants bring education to my area schools?
Heidi Milby, AFHK

Hi Gretchen, we have funded technology as part of our grants in the past, so this is certainly within the realm of what we would fund. The key is to make that strong connection (and be specific) between use of funds with the grant deliverables.

Is this an annual grant program, or is this a one-time opportunity? Thanks!
Heidi Milby, AFHK
01:06:25
Hi Lane. This is an annual opportunity.

Do we need to apply as a District with all the Schools that want to participate or could we apply as a School site?

I am unfamiliar with the demographics of the district — whether it falls in line with your grant criteria. I would be interested in applying for other districts even if mine isn’t a fit. Does it make sense to work in this way — from topic/content vs. specific district
Heidi Milby, AFHK
01:08:27
Hi Milagros, you should apply as a District. If you would like to be considered for the Nourished opportunity, you'll be asked to specify the schools that will receive funding and support.
Heidi Milby, AFHK
01:09:17
Hi Gretchen - Reach out to us at contactus@actionforhealthykids and we can tell you where the district(s) you're considering fall in terms of our eligibility criteria.
Heidi Milby, AFHK
01:11:35
One note on the timeline - As we mentioned earlier, we are flexible! We recognize that the timeline is tight, but we'll work with districts to accommodate schedules to the extent that we can.
Kate McDevitt
01:12:03
Thank you so much for this clarification, Heidi! It is a very busy time as we close out the school year.
Lane Brown
01:15:30
I had to join a little late and may have missed this: How many awardees do you anticipate there will be in this grant cycle?
Lane Brown
01:23:37
How many awards will you make through the district partnership grant? Thanks!
Lane Brown
01:24:25
Thank you! Great presentation today.
