  1. Last year one of the recipients of a TERRA grant said she needed to get a lot of approvals from her district — after winning the grant but before she could spend the money. Be sure you have your principal’s ok on what you want to do before you submit, and ask your principal whether there are other people in the district who would have to sign off on this expenditure. Unfortunately, that administrative process can take weeks or months that limit your ability to spend the grant money.
