The BVSD Grants Office is responsible for planning, writing and monitoring the district’s major grants, which provide more than $12 million annually to supplement state and local tax-based school funding. Grants to BVSD support all areas of K-12 education: academics, enrichment, intervention, student support services, teacher training, and some operational functions. We also provide guidance to other staff and volunteers who write grants. This department is charged with promoting partnerships with other institutions that can provide direct or indirect support to BVSD; for managing the district’s accountability process for grants; and for compliance with federal laws concerning grants.
