Grant Oversight Committee
Our Offices at the District are often interested in pursuing a variety of grants, and while that’s exciting, we don’t have the resources to pursue them all at the same time! This Grant Oversight Committee reviews the various grant opportunities on the table at that time, and decides which to pursue, and if so which Office should take the lead in pursuing it.
The Committee is comprised of representatives from all major District offices that are involved in grant-funded activities. We meet every two weeks, on Wednesdays.
The Committee reviews all major grant opportunities to make strategic decisions on leading applications, as well as ensuring partnerships are appropriate and beneficial to its students and schools to best support Action Plan 3.0. Decisions are made on a census of the group.
We are always excited to welcome potential partners to work with us. At our bi-weekly meetings, the Grants Oversight Committee reviews the various applicants by way of the three types of Intent to Apply forms we ask you to submit. We discuss which partnerships are appropriate and beneficial to our students and schools. For more information on these forms, please refer to the How to Apply page.
- To be included on a meeting agenda, you must submit your form no later than noon on the Monday before the Wednesday meeting.
- If you are submitting the Outside Entity form, please also take into account that your submission must be provided 3 weeks before your grant is due.
- If there is a specific meeting date on which you want your form reviewed, please contact us to verify the date.
- We reserve the right to cancel a meeting due to unexpected circumstances.
When is the next committee meeting?
We meet twice a month on Tuesdays. So no matter when you submit, you’ll never have to wait more than 2 weeks to have your materials seen by our committee.
When do I have to submit my form(s) in order to get on the agenda for the next meeting?
By noon on the Friday before the next Tuesday meeting.
