In addition, each school is allocated an additional 840 hours or $11,760 in stipends.  These Class I stipends are used for other extracurricular activities such as clubs or other activities. Schools determine which additional clubs to offer based on needs and interest at the particular school. Schools submit their plans for Class 1 and Class 3 stipends at the start of each school year.  Changes can be made throughout the year using a change process so long as the funds have not already been spent by the school.  Guidelines for Class 1 activities are outlined in the extracurricular handbook. They cannot be used to augment existing Class 3 stipends, schools must submit a plan that includes a description of the activity including start and end date, and any one activity may not exceed 100 hours.
