Dodgen PTSA Appropriations Committee


The PTSA Appropriations Committee reviews all grant requests submitted.

The Appropriations’ money is used to promote programs and further education that benefits the health, safety, education and welfare of Dodgen students per the PTSA guidelines. Requested items should benefit as many students as possible. The Appropriations Committee consists of PTSA members, Dodgen staff/administration and parents.

If you have an item that you feel the students would benefit from, please submit a grant request for Appropriations and the Foundation to review.

You can also place any additional information in the PTSA mailbox labeled "Appropriations Requests" no later than the request deadline listed for the meeting.


  1. Please complete the request form. 
    • The more information you provide the Committee, the fewer unknowns and questions we will have.
  2. Please attach pictures, catalog pages, product descriptions and how the product will be used to benefit the greatest number of students.
  3.  if requesting software or an online subscription, it must be software that has already been approved by Cobb County.



The Committee will take one of three actions with any submitted request:

  1. Approve
  2. Deny
  3. Table the request to further gather information or consider

The Committee will email the action taken on your request within a week of the meeting.  

Unfortunately, the committee will not be reviewing requests between meetings via email. 

This does not allow for the committee to collaborate, ask questions or discuss relevant information.
