The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District actively supports teachers, administrators, and staff as they seek external funding for innovative projects for the classroom, school and district. Individual projects illustrate the strategic vision and goals established by the board of education.
The Federal Programs and Grants Office supports staff and district partners in the areas of idea and project development and grant submission. Starting with assistance developing the project or program idea, support is provided in finding matching funders, writing and/or editing the submission to align with grant and district guidelines, submitting the grant successfully on deadline, following up with funders and providing the superintendent, treasurer and board of education with full information about the program idea and grant submission.
Upon receipt of a grant award, the awardee is assisted in understanding and successfully navigating the district process for accessing grant funds: budgeting in the proper state-aligned fund codes; creating individual vendor designations for reimbursements; writing requisitions for POs; and filing final financial reports with funders.
