The Grants and Awards Accounting Department operates within the Accounting Division of JCPS. We provide the accounting services required for all federal, state, local, and specially funded grants received by the school district.
Grants and Awards Accounting reports on approximately 350 grants with total budgets in excess of $300 million. Major federal and state grants received by JCPS are Title I, Title II, and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA); Extended School Services (ESS); Professional Development; Textbooks; Technology; and Preschool. Several private foundations also provide grants to the district, such as the Jefferson County Public Education Foundation (JCPEF), Gheens Foundation, The Community Foundation, and General Electric Foundation to name a few.
Our office is made up of 11 staff members, which includes 7 accounting clerks, a senior accounting clerk, a data management/research technician, a coordinator, and the department supervisor.
The primary focus of this office is to have efficient and accurate financial accounting and reporting of all grants and to ensure that all grant requirements, as well as all JCPS policies and procedures, are strictly adhered to. Our primary commitment is to serve with excellence and integrity as we assist schools and grant directors with grant accountability and compliance.
Grants and Awards does not write grant applications. Applications for grants are written, processed, and approved by the Resource Development Office. You can contact them at (502) 485-3290.
