  • School Information Sheet

  • The Cover Letter (one page)

    Text must be double spaced and no more than three single-sided pages using one-inch margins.
    The proposal should be organized in the following manner:

    • School Climate—Tell us something about the current climate of your school and the transformation efforts (or lack of) which are currently underway.
    • Project Description—What you hope to accomplish - the philosophical and practical underpinnings.
    • Benefits to the school—How your efforts would benefit the students and positively impact school climate.
    • Sabbatical Plans—How you envision your sabbatical time, particularly during the fall semester.
  • A Preliminary Budget

  • Three Letters of Support

    1. One from principal that supports you and demonstrates the principal's endorsement of your proposal. This is a critical element of the application.
    2. One from department chair or immediate supervisor

  • A Current Resume

  • Three copies of the application collated in the above sequence (without folders, covers or binding, other than paperclips) should be mailed to the address below and postmarked by December, 2015.
