Important Steps to Follow
- Before beginning the grant writing process, complete a pre-approval form and submit it to grants. The assistant superintendent (or appropriate cabinet member) will review and approve the pre-application before you move to the next step.
- Draft your proposal or application. Keep in mind that grants staff is generally available to help craft and edit proposals, and to help you gather any required attachments. Email or call with your questions.
- Send a final draft of the written grant application and attachments to the grants department at least seven business days before the grant deadline. The grants staff will create a consent agenda item for the next Board of Education meeting and establish a grant file in the district’s grant and financial management system.
- If your grant is awarded, you can spend it only after: (A) the Board of Education knows about and has approved it, and (B) the grant application and award documents are entered in the district’s financial management system.
