The article presents strategies for establishing a year-round grants committee for the school's Web site. As suggested, specific needs for the school site should be identified by preparing a brief description of the school, including the data that support the statements of need. A committee of five reliable workers must be established who have credibility in the school community to represent as stakeholders. Parent and community leaders are also considered in addition to staff members. The entire committee must be sent to a grant writing workshop to build working relationships, strengthen the team, and support collaboration. Regular meeting is needed to research funding opportunities, share information, and develop a plan to keep the school community informed of the committee's activities.
