Grant Programs to Support School Initiatives


Each board office has an allocation of discretionary facilities bond monies to award to its schools for a variety of facilities-related projects. In addition, each board office also has a limited amount of funds to support field trips and non-facilities-related requests, and it’s within the discretion of the board office to determine how these funds are allocated.

In an effort to be fair, transparent and equitable with how we support the incredible work schools undertake every day, we are creating two grant programs to help us distribute these funds. The programs are highlighted below.
