Grant Date: March 2006 – July 2008
ACE Grant: $98,025
In 2005, ACE saw the potential for the Andover School System to qualify for many state, federal, and private foundation grants by having a Grants Coordinator position. This position was new to the Andover Public Schools. ACE provided a little more than 2 years of fully funded salary for a part time Grants Coordinator. This was the first successful fundraising goal for ACE and the first grant to the Andover Public Schools. Through the hard work of the Administration and the Grants Coordinator, and by partnering with other school districts, Andover Public Schools have received $3,740,151 (as of October 2015) in grants. Because of the success of the ACE grant, the position is now funded by the school budget.
