  1. Staff members at individual schools can apply for grants of up to $20,000 without prior approval from the District’s central office. But please contact our team at the Office of Grant Development because we are eager to help in any way possible. We have a lot of experience with grant writing and we’d love to share what we’ve learned over the years.
  2. Before applying for grants exceeding $20,000, staff and principals at individual schools must submit an Intent to Apply form for review by the Grant Oversight Committee. The Committee will then decide if the grant or partnership opportunity is appropriate and beneficial to students and schools. Please review the following “Read only PDF”Link to and when you are ready to apply please fill out our required Intent to Apply form.
  3. The Grants Oversight Committee meets every second Tuesday. To be included on an upcoming meeting agenda, the Intent to Apply form must be submitted by the Friday before the meeting. Please note the form must be submitted at least three weeks before the grant is due.TIP: Successful grant applicants and fund raisers have a clear vision of what their school community needs or is striving to achieve. Target a specific need or issue. While it’s tempting to pursue funding simply for general school needs, not having a focus can derail even the best intended efforts. We suggest focusing on a laser-like fashion on a pre-determined priority and put all resources into success.
