What is ACTT?

 

Our ACTT (Academic Contributions for Today and Tomorrow) grant & scholarship program established in 1995 provides much needed financial support directly to our classrooms and our students. We work in coordination with the LGHS administration, department chairs and classroom teachers, as well as New Millennium Foundation to ensure that we are funding the highest priority needs for our students through the most efficient and appropriate sources of funding. All ACTT funds are disbursed to the faculty in the form of grants, given as senior scholarships, or used for Student-to-Student programs.

 

What does ACTT Fund?


Teachers request ACTT funds through a grant process in August of each school year. Grants are coordinated through departments to avoid duplication and to ensure ACCT funds are used for materials not available through other school sources. In past years ACTT has funded such materials as:

Computers, printers and LCD projectors
Agroecology program equipment
Chemistry lab equipment

Biology lab supplies

Math class calculators
Cultural exchange activities
And other important classroom materials 

 

How can I support ACTT?


Donations are requested at the beginning of each school year, but are accepted anytime.  Simply use the Membership/Directory form and add your ACTT donation amount to your dues amount. Payment can be made online, or your student can submit a check during Wildcat Days.
