How are PTO funds allocated and dispersed?

One important part of the Horn Elementary School PTO Mission is to coordinate fundraising events in order to purchase various building and classroom needs which are not funded by the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD).  (You can visit our Horn PTO Mission Statement here.)  Below you will find a chart depicting how PTO funds reach Horn School each year.  For information about how the PTO raises funding to support the expenses, please see our Fundraising section of this website and this article on our expected yearly income for 2013-2014 school year.
