Endowment Grants Selection Committee Membership:

~Two peer-group selected teachers, preferably one representing the middle school and the other representing the high school

~Community member, school and community involved, selected by eight school committee members.
Members shall serve staggered, three-year terms except for the student members; committee should elect its own chair. For the initial three years, the Building Principal shall chair the Committee. Each committee member's vote shall be equal. Committee members are not eligible for grant funding. If a committee member has a potential conflict of interest regarding an application, that committee member must recuse him/herself from participating in a decision on that application. If funding criteria are not met, the Selection Committee reserves the right not to approve any grants for that year.
After the initial five-year review (Fall, 2015) by participating MHASD personnel and representatives of the initiating committee from the Class of 1959, an assessment of the implementation of the endowment will be carried out at least once each decade.
Decadal review: MHASD alumni representing different graduating classes plus a community member who has previously served on the Endowment Grants Selection Committee shall carry out this review. The intent of this review is to assess if the implementation of the Endowment is consistent with its intended purpose.
