Grant & District Community Programs
Quarterly Newsletter - November 2019
Accessing funds and building relationships to create opportunity
The Office of Grants & District/Community Programs is not quite 2 months old but we are already busy setting up new processes for grants development and management, and building essential relationships, with the goal of increasing opportunities for staff and student growth and success. You can expect to hear from us at least 4 times a year with updates on grant projects and programs as well as information on new initiatives, and upcoming grant opportunities suitable for teachers and building staff (check these out below).
We combine the grants and programs work of the former office of Research & Development with an intentional, focused approach to increasing quality parent and community involvement in our schools.
GDCP efforts include coordinating District and community resources, through beneficial partnerships, to identify and fill gaps in student services. We have a special interest in social, emotional, and behavioral health as well as overall wellness.
