Disseminating Information on Proposal Development and Supportive Services Pertaining to Government Funded Programs.
Moffat, James G.
This publication describes a practicum that developed, disseminated, and evaluated a proposal development handbook intended to aid school district personnel in submitting proposals to funding agencies. In addition to the handbook, several other dissemination activities were developed and implemented to meet the needs of specific target audiences. These activities included development of a multimedia slide presentation and companion brochure on early childhood programs, development of a comprehensive bilingual education program and a companion booklet, creation of a brochure to answer parents' questions about Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and establishment of an information center to provide easy access to resource materials about federally funded programs and activities. Evaluation data is presented to show that the proposal development handbook and inservice workshops that explained it did improve the quality of proposals submitted. Samples of the instruments developed to evaluate the other activities are also provided, and preliminary results of those evaluations are reported. (Author/JG)
