Professional Growth and Development Grants

Application for a Professional Growth and Development Grant must include a completed proposal developed to comply with the format/ form provided in the grant application packet. A response to each section of the form is required at the time of submission.

Grant applications including the proposed project may be submitted anytime during the academic year but the proposed project must be completed by the end of the academic year the project is implemented.

Proposals submitted early in the fiscal year (beginning September 1) improves the chance for funding because the budget for this project is limited and may be depleted later.

Applications including complete proposals that reflect the purpose and principles for this grant program will be selected on a first come, first served basis with priority given to schools in the most critical stages of correction for failure to meet AYP.
