Welcome to Durham Public Schools Grants Management Portal!

Durham Public School recognizes the importance of outside funding in shaping the future of Durham Public Schools.  The Grant Department was designed to support and advance the District's mission, strategic plan and to strengthen the quality of the grant submissions to external agencies and foundations.

To support the district's goals, the Research and Accountability Department Office has developed policies and procedures for seeking grant funds and accepting awards on behalf of the District.

The grant portal is designed with two levels.  Level I supports applications that are less than $10,000 and Level II supports applications that are more than $10,000.  For Level I grants, a School Grant Award Notification form must be completed. For all grants over $10,000, an Intent to Apply Form must be completed. Research and Accountability staff will review the form and obtain the necessary pre-approval from the Superintendent before grant writing begins.

If there are questions, please contact Karin Beckett at (919) 560-2000, extension 29066 or by email at
