Planning a proposal, suggested meeting agendas, rules and regulations, and evaluation criteria are the subject of the second part. In the third part, developing a needs assessment instrument for the teacher center is discussed. The personnel of the teacher center is the subject of the fourth part; the project staff, director qualifications, specialists, and coordinators are considered. Included in this section are sample budget forms and methods of projecting a budget. The completed proposal for a teacher center is the focus of the fifth part, including suggestions on obtaining government funding.
