The goal for the Christian County Public School District’s competitive grant process is to maximize resources available to the school district to improve educational services. Through grant initiatives, the District seeks funding for effective programs that enhance student achievement, advance school improvement plans, and support district initiatives.

These pages provide a quick and easy overview of a few of the grant funding opportunities currently available for individual teachers or school sites. These grants have been selected based on district needs, district eligibility, consistency with Board policy and goals, and interest to educators.

 We’ve also provided links and contact information for data that is most commonly requested in grant applications and contact information for staff that could assist you with locating other data.

Any grant exceeding $3,500 will require review by the Superintendent’s Cabinet. Please see the Intent to Apply area for more information.
