Full staff listing

Grants Writer Office

The Grants Writer / Manager oversees the district-wide grant pre-approval process to align funding efforts with district goals. The Grants Writer / Manager supports educators and directors through the pre-approval process, assists with grant research & writing, and stewards proposals to completion & submission to funders.

Grant Management Department

The Grant Management Department monitors compliance and provides technical assistance to schools and program units that are awarded federal, state, local or private grants. The department's primary task is to monitor the budgets, expenditures and required financial reports for all the district's grant funds.  It is our primary responsibility to ensure that documents are complete, accurate, and coded correctly.  We are then responsible for securing the reimbursement from the grantor.  Although we rely on the program departments within APS to ensure the programs are running correctly, we do have a financial responsibility to ensure the payments are accurate.

 Legislative Projects

This office works closely with schools, principals and legislators.  Legislative officials earmark funds for special projects throughout the district.  The Legislative Projects team provides technical assistance, guidance and compliance on these special projects.
