Proposals that win grants for K-12 education have many predictable information needs. Applicants that have already such information on hand before the announcement of a grant opportunity greatly improve the likelihood of funding.

 

Applicants may not need to provide every item listed here in every staffing plan; however, among the proposal narrative elements they should anticipate are: local non-discriminatory employment plans, position descriptions, résumés or vitae, time commitments, and local salary/wage schedules.

 

Non-Discriminatory Employment Plans:

  1. Description of local staff recruitment and retention plan
  2. Description of local non-discriminatory employment (or affirmative action) plan
  3. Evidence of compliance with local non-discriminatory employment (or affirmative action) plan
  4. Number and ratio of proposed staff members by categories such as: elderly, racial/ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and women
  5. Number and ratio of existing staff members by categories such as: elderly, racial/ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and women

 

Position Descriptions:

  1. Position descriptions for all personnel to be paid for out of a new grant
  2. Position descriptions for all other project-related key personnel

 

Résumés and Curricula Vitae:

  1. Résumés for all personnel to be paid for out of a new grant
  2. Résumés for all other project-related key personnel to be involved in the proposed project

 

Time Commitments and Wages/Salaries:

  1. Time commitments for all anticipated personnel as percent of full-time equivalent (or % FTE)
  2. Local salary and wage schedules for all positions to appear in the proposal’s itemized budget
  3. Analysis of anticipated time and effort for all positions (sorted by key functions/tasks)

 

Later posts will cover information needs for other aspects of educational grant proposals.
