Application Deadline: Extended to February 1, 2008
Dear Colleague,
ProLiteracy is pleased to announce that the second of three modules
being produced through the Dollar General/ProLiteracy Performance
Accountability Initiative will be presented in all six ProLiteracy
regions.
The second module begins with a day-and-a-half training on Data Analysis
for Program Decision-Making. This training will help programs identify
their accountability system gaps while it shares promising practices
related to:

* analyzing data and identifying trends
* developing processes and strategies for data-driven program
improvement
* developing and using decision-making teams
* creating and using data reports
* evaluating success

The training is based on understanding and implementing program
improvement principles related to accountability. It is not restricted
to any one type of database. Much of the content of the training is
drawn from exemplary literacy and adult education programs across the
country.
Programs that participate in the training will be asked to
* implement one or more of the promising practices over the nine
months following the training
* share their challenges, experiences, and successful strategies
as part of the print pieces that ProLiteracy will distribute nationally
at the end of the project.
A stipend of $900.00 is available to support program participation in
the project. The stipend is meant to help defray travel and hotel
expenses and to help cover reporting requirements.
For an application and guidelines, or for more information about Data
Analysis for Program Decision-Making, please contact Marie Cora at
mcora at proliteracy.org.
To be considered for participation, your program must submit its
completed application via e-mail (snail mail or faxes CANNOT be
accepted) by February 1, 2008, to mcora at proliteracy.org. Up to 20
programs will be selected and invited to send two people from each
program to the training.
If you know of other programs that may be interested in this
opportunity, please share this message with them.
Thank you,
Marie Cora, Project Manager
ProLiteracy America
