Research & Grants

The Grants Office actively seeks federal, state, corporate and private grants for the support of educating all of our children in the District. This effort is done with the support of the Leadership and along with the talented efforts of our teachers and school administrators. The Cobb County School District has been awarded many grants that provide innovative programs impacting all students.

The Research and Evaluation Department processes student, school, and district achievement, assessment, demographic, and other data. Results are analyzed and reported to parents, the public, schools, district administrators, the Board of Education, and public agencies. Research also works with Program Evaluation and Strategic Planning.
