Grants and Special Projects
The role of Grants and Special Projects is to work with Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) administrators, instructional and technical personnel to generate and maintain external funding for special initiatives in support of increased academic achievement for all students. Staff works with teachers and administrators to prepare competitive and entitlement grant applications. When grants are funded, managers monitor program compliance with funder guidelines and district, state and federal requirements. In 2014-15 Grant and Special Projects monitored 218 projects for compliance totaling more than $148 million.
