“In many states, perhaps all but I don’t know one way or the other, boards of education have to approve the receipt of all grants. However, I am not aware of boards being required to approve grant applications,” says Donald McAdams, Center for Reform of School Systems (and 1990-2002 Houston school board member). “If a superintendent was worried that a board would not approve the receipt of a grant he or she would seek approval before going to all the trouble to make the grant application.”
