The Sparta Area School District (SASD) takes a proactive approach to supplementing local funding resources by applying for grants that will enhance its mission to "provide students of all backgrounds and potentials with a rich academic experience in a safe and supportive environment." The grant policy as outlined in Article 166 (PDF) supports the District's educational philosophy and Board of Education goals.

The SASD has a rich history of applying for and receiving competitive grant funding from a variety of public and private sources. Since January 2004, the District has received close to $2 million in supplemental funding. These grant dollars have provided incentives for developing and implementing capacity-building programs and services that include four charter schools and two 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
