INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Basic Proposal Writing Video

 
  Enclosed is a videotape presentation entitled "Basic Proposal
  Writing." The Department of Education produced this
  presentation in response to requests from school divisions for
  technical assistance with the development of their Technology
  Literacy Challenge (TLC) subgrant proposal.

  The program is approximately 25 minutes in length. It features
  Margaret Sprouse, an educator who has served as an independent
  consultant on proposal writing to school divisions and has
  conducted many workshops on this topic. The presentation
  offers an overview of the basic components of a proposal and
  looks at the components and requirements of the TLC proposal.
  Mrs. Sprouse gives viewers some guidelines for proposal
  development and offers some reasons why a proposal may not be
  funded. Additionally, we have contracted with Mrs. Sprouse to
  respond to your questions, either electronically or by regular
  mail.

  Additional copies of this video presentation may be requested
  by contacting the Department's Production Service, at 804-225-2400.
  Inquiries regarding the video presentation may be addressed to
  Lan Neugent, Assistant Superintendent for Technology,(804) 225-2757,
  or , regarding the development of  your TLC
  proposal.

  We hope that this presentation will be useful to you with the
  preparation of your TLC subgrant proposal.
