You can help your teachers write grant proposals for an effective professional development program. PD grants usually require the following components:

  • Compile data about the teachers’ skills, use of technology, and current teaching practice.
  • Read the proposal guidelines for professional development very clearly.
  • Make sure your proposal meets what the guidelines are asking for and that the professional development goals support student goals.
  • Design goals, objectives and benchmarks for professional development.
  • Develop a timeline for each benchmark (activity) including who is responsible, and when each activity is to be implemented.
  • Consider how you will evaluate and monitor each benchmark and modify the program if objectives are not met.
  • Determine which resources will be needed and develop a budget for each resource.
  • Write the abstract as a summary last.
