Active grants inventory (July 2024)

This file lists all active grants and funding agreements officially received by SPS for the 2023-24 school year. This file will be updated monthly.

Continuous School Improvement Plans

The Continuous School Improvement Plan, C-SIP, is an action plan for each school that identifies the areas a school plans to focus on in the current and coming school year, the performance goals they want students to achieve, and how the school plans to collaboratively meet these goals. The plans are updated regularly to reflect the strategies being used at each school. This document also serves as the school-wide improvement plan for our Title I schools.

Learning Assistance Program

The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) is Washington’s state-funded program that provides additional academic support to eligible students. LAP funds are available to support programs in grades K-12 in reading, writing, mathematics, and readiness for those subjects.

Private Schools

Under Section 9501 of Title IX of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), private, nonprofit elementary and secondary school students, teachers and other educational personnel are eligible to participate in federally-funded programs as authorized under the Act.


Seattle Public Schools recognizes the generous support from our community of PTAs and PTSAs and the fundraising they undertake on behalf of their schools. PTAs and PTSAs that intend to support FTE positions for the following school year should write a letter of intent to indicate what position(s) they will support with their grant dollars. The letter of intent should be signed and sent to the school’s principal during budget development each spring.


One of the federal requirements of LEAs accepting ARP-ESSER grants (ESSER III) is to create a plan that outlines how the funds will be used and post this plan on their website. The links below are the plans for Seattle Public Schools’ ESSER III grants. 20% of the grant must be used for Learning Loss, and it represents a separate plan.
