Important dates

Enhancement Grant Reporting Deadline: July 31 annually

School authorities must report on the dual credit enhancement funding allocated for a school year by July 31. The report needs to identify:

  • expenses for the school year
  • a description of the enhancement
  • how the enhancement benefits students
  • how many students were impacted

All school authorities must report on the dual credit enhancement grant funding allocated for a school year by July 31. However, if school authorities have not spent the enhancement grant funding they were allocated, it can be carried forward to the next school year by completing the grant reporting template. Once that school year ends, another report needs to be submitted for the reallocated amount.

The lead school authority is responsible for completing and submitting the report by using the interactive Dual Credit Enhancement Funding Grant Reporting Template.
