  5. No later than six months after receipt of the grant, each recipient will be responsible for presenting a copy of the previous grant application and for preparing three copies of a report documenting how funds were spent.
  6. Expenditure of grant monies awarded must be restricted to the following categories: purchase of printed teaching or learning materials, teaching supplies, training,  and/or technology.
