Rochester School District: A Working Model of the Funding Process.
Hale, Phale D.
Many considerations are involved in obtaining and using federal funds for language arts programs. Before attempting to explore funding, educators should know the basic language arts programs available in their district and what kinds of programs are fundable by particular sources. They should then develop a written program statement that includes specific objectives and evidence of need, and they should use the proposal writing period to plan carefully for the program's implementation. When implementing a funded program, school districts should give careful attention to staff training and to developing a curriculum that is integrated with the ongoing instructional program. Finally, districts should design methods for evaluating the program in terms of the needs statement, the curriculum around which it was developed, and the effects on students in the program. The evaluation results should be used to aid in program improvement. (GW)
