Finding Funding: Check Out These Dozen Daring Ideas for Generating Extra Cash
Solomon, Gwen
Technology & Learning, v26 n12 p14 Jul 2006
As state coffers continue to shrink this year, there is less money for education, and much of what is available is earmarked for mandates. Yet the money is out there if one knows how to find, create, or borrow it; the trick is to be creative. In this article, the author offers a dozen daring ideas for generating extra cash. The highest-profile strategy this year is leveraging: using information, systems, technologies, funds, or other resources earmarked for one purpose to support a more pressing priority. The No Child Left Behind Act encourages leveraging federal funds by allowing the movement of money from one Title to another. Leveraging means that the district can move money between Title II (professional development) and Title V (innovative programs).
