Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation: Success AwardsDeadline: September 11, 2017
The Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Education Foundation’s Success Awards are intended to make an impact at a schoolwide level. School leaders should apply for programs or projects with the potential to serve large numbers of students and to improve the learning experiences of students in a measurable way. The Foundation envisions its grant programs as an opportunity to pilot new, innovative, or promising programs in the district.
The ultimate goal of the Success Awards is to create a project, or continue a project, that advances academic excellence in a measurable way. Proposed projects should:
- Serve an entire school or a large percentage of students, such as a grade level or department
- Focus on meeting the needs of and improving outcomes for students
- Use measurable outcomes to determine the success of the project
Proposals should focus on a specific need at a school linked to academic results, truancy, school attendance, school climate, or another issue. Keep in mind that 74% of APS schools are Title I high-poverty schools so this is not a unique need.
Amount: One or more awards of between $10,000-$25,000 will be made. Awards may be made for one or two years.
Eligibility: A school principal or a district department that deals directly with schools and students. The applicant must have the full support of its school administration. Only APS employees may submit applications.
Note: Proposals for large amounts of technology (laptops carts, computer labs, or class sets of computers) should consult with Jason Johnson, Executive Director of IT, at Jason.firstname.lastname@example.org or 505.830.6857 to confirm that the IT infrastructure will support the request and to get an accurate quote for the cost of the technology.
