1 Sumter County Schools and Sumter Archway Partnership GRANT FUNDING APPLICATION FOR BUS STOP SHELTERS AND SIGNAGE Grant Writer: Farrah R. Senn Sumter County Schools Superintendent: Dr. Roy Brooks

2 Archway Partnership Project Data Sheet Project Name: Sumter County Schools (SCS) Bus Stop Shelter and Signage Grant Location: Sumter County, GA Description: SCS requests assistance in determining available grant funding to be used for construction of bus stop shelters and signage placement. Archway Contact: Matt Bishop University of Georgia, Hoke Smith Building, Athens, GA Community Contacts: Barbara Grogan Archway Professional Tracy Monts Interim Transportation Supervisor Student Assigned: Farrah R. Senn EDLD, 8436 Spring 2011 Final product: This report includes the information and documentation needed to complete an online application to the Lowe s Foundation to provide for grant funding, and a volunteer application and donation letter. Executive Summary: Sumter County Schools, with the assistance of the University of Georgia Archway Partnership, seeks $50,000 in grant funds to purchase and construct shelters and place signage at 40 bus stops throughout the county. Over 50 percent of Sumter County school students ride the bus, and 11 percent of Sumter County households do not own a vehicle. Riding a bus to school is the only viable option for many students. Shelters and signage will protect children from the elements while waiting for the bus to arrive. The project will rely heavily on community volunteers to help construct the shelters, and will begin with a kick-off breakfast where volunteers will be shown how the assemble the shelters and will end with a ribbon cutting to celebrate completion and to recognize volunteers involved. Lowe s administers a continuous funding cycle and an organization may submit application as needed.

9 Your Organization Detailed Information: Project details include goals and objectives (limit 1000 char.) Sumter County Schools seeks to improve safety at 40 bus stops by placing signage and constructing shelters under which students can be protected from the elements while waiting for the bus to arrive. Riding the bus helps to reduce local traffic congestion, provide working parents with valuable transportation alternatives for their children, and provide families who do not own a vehicle a means to get their children safely to school. The National Research Council found that riding the bus is the safest way to get to school, even safer than walking. Nearly 50 % of Sumter County students use the bus as their primary means of transportation to school, and 11% of Sumter County households do not own a vehicle. Given these facts, there are two primary objectives involved, 1) To construct and maintain accessible, central, and comfortable locations for students to wait for the school bus and 2) To increase visibility and safety of bus stop locations by adding structures and signage. What kind of volunteer opportunities exist with this project? Will there be any community events centered around this project? Will Lowe s employees be welcomed as volunteers? (limit 300 char.) This project relies heavily on community volunteer labor, requiring approximately 120 volunteers at 8 hours each for a total of 960 volunteer hours. Lowe s employees knowledge of building materials and experience with construction would be welcomed as a vital part of this project. What events or other promotions have you planned to publicize the grant and your project? (limit 300 char.) Two promotional events are planned, including a kick-off breakfast, where volunteers will watch a demonstration of how to construct the shelters, and a ribbon cutting ceremony upon completion of the project to recognize and appreciate the volunteers involved as well as any donations/grants received. Approximately how many people does your organization serve? (Select one): o Under 100 o o 501-1,000 o ,000 o ,000 X o Over 10,000

10 Primary group served? (Select one): o Women o Children X o Seniors o Underprivileged o Disabled o Other (Please specify): What is the approximate ethnic/racial breakdown of the student population? Please enter a percentage in each box below. Numbers must total 100%. o o o o o o Caucasian 25.0 African American Hispanic Asian American Indian Other *Pending confirmation from SCS How many students received free or reduced lunch in your school? (For k-12 public school initiative) (Select one): o Less than 5% o 5% - 15% o 16% - 25% o 25% - 40% o 41% - 65% o 66% - 80% o Greater than 80% X *Pending confirmation from SCS Zip code(s) most served by the project (List up to five) and 31719

11 Who will report back to the foundation with follow-up information and the progress of your project? How often? (limit 100 char.) Given the project may take up to a year to complete, Sumter County Schools Transportation Director Jerome Smith will be in charge of reporting progress on the project on a quarterly basis, to include the number of shelters constructed to date.

12 Volunteer Pledge Form Note: This form letter has been drafted at the request of the grant seeker to assist with volunteer recruitment. The letter will be sent to area businesses and organizations that may send volunteers or donations to help with the project. [Your Name] [Street Address] [City, ST ZIP Code] Date [Recipient Name] [Title] [Company Name] [Street Address] [City, ST ZIP Code] Dear[Recipient Name]: We are reaching out to businesses and organizations in our area in order to help the children of Sumter County Schools. The goal we hope to achieve with your help is providing shelters for students at bus stops. Currently, children must wait for the bus in open roadside areas exposed to the sun, wind, rain and other types of weather that threaten their health and safety. We are seeking to improve this part of their school day by providing shelters at 40 bus stops throughout the county. Would you like to help us make a difference? We need people like you to donate time, energy, and experience in order to make this project happen, to help our children have a better morning, better school day, and ultimately a better education. Because the proper type of shelter is expensive to purchase and install, we are relying on volunteers to help construct them to offset costs. We will hold a training session and have the manufacturer demonstrate how to build the pre-fab shelters, followed by our volunteers in

13 groups of 3 to 4 assemble a shelter at an assigned site. We anticipate the training session to last a half day, and the assembly to require a full day. With 40 bus stops total, we need many volunteers. Together, with only a day and a half of volunteered time each, we have the opportunity to improve each and every morning for many school children for years to come. However, if you are unable to donate your time, you can still assist by making a monetary donation toward project expenses in any amount you are able. Companies and organizations that provide volunteers or donate over $100 toward this project will be recognized at a ribbon cutting ceremony once the shelters are complete. Enclosed please find a volunteer form that pledges your company s willingness to help in this endeavor. We need your pledge in order to help secure grant funding to help offset the costs of this project. If you would like additional information, please call us today at [phone number] to find out more. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Tracy Monts Interim Transportation Supervisor, Sumter County Schools
