The Grants Office manages approximately $1.3 million in federal funds for Arlee Schools.  The grant programs in Arlee Schools include Title I School Wide, Elementary Title III Discretionary Grant, HS Title III Discretionary Grant, HS Indian Ed Demonstration, GEAR UP, 21st Century, Gifted and Talented, Title VII Indian Education, Jobs for Montana Graduates, and Breakfast Before the Bell. 
These programs support student achievement, cultural integration, after-school and summer programs, college and career awareness, and professional development for teachers.
Besides federal funds, our office collaborates with community organizations to diversify educational opportunities for the students.  Friends of Arlee Schools, a local non-profit organization, purchases classroom supplies each fall, holds the annual Buttercup Run each spring to raise scholarship money for local students, and supports our local Summer Leadership Academy for junior high students.
