Competitive Grants Office

The CCSD Competitive Grants Office is a new expansion of the Funded Projects Department and is responsible for researching, identifying, and applying for competitive funding opportunities to specifically support district goals and priorities, project planning, implementation, and assess impact of both short and long-term grant deliverables.  The Competitive Grants Office manages the infrastructure and framework for processes and procedures for grant planning, solicitation, overall management, and accountability.


The Competitive Grants team also works closely with teachers and other staff throughout the district by providing support in project/proposal development, preparing budgets, editing, monitoring to ensure overall compliance, and assisting in grant reporting. 


If you are a CCSD teacher and/or staff members and are interested in applying for a grant for your school, please make sure you follow the district process and submit the brief 1-page Letter of Intent.  Please go to the Competitive Grants page in the CCSD Backyard for more information, forms, and resources. 


If you have any questions or need for additional information, please contact Lisa Olson, Competitive Grants Coordinator at or 720-886-7052.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
