Hosting Guest Speakers
Things to Know…
There is a charge for bringing guest speakers into your classroom. It is pro-rated based on socioeconomic status to ease the burden on lower-income districts.

Possible Funding Sources…
There are several ways you can fund the guest speaker charge without dipping into your school’s general fund. Some options include:
- Federal Funds like Title I, ELI (Title III), 21st Century Skills (Title IV), Special Education (IDEA).
- Education Tax Credits like Character Development Programs or Enrichment and Extracurricular.
- Corporate/Individual sponsors who are willing to sponsor a school or classroom, a speaker, or a workplace skill. Sponsors can also match your school’s fundraising efforts.
