Focus

Explore possible funding sources.

Explanation

The establishment of an LCO will require the commitment of additional funding to provide for both the initial scoping, start-up costs (installation of hardware, software, etc.) and the ongoing maintenance costs (ISP and telecommunications charges, cluster coordination/management, staff professional development/student support etc.). Although too early in the process to make any formal commitments, it is advisable that potential sources of funding are explored at this stage, as this is likely to be one of the key questions that come up when schools are invited to make a commitment to proceed with the proposal.

Action

  • Research possible funding sources and scope proposals to take to possible funding sources.
  • Where appropriate make initial approaches to potential funders.
