RE: 502, WA2, Dike

The purpose of EVOC 502 WA2 was to prepare a proposal for a Vocational Student Organization in Networking Technology at Grant High School. The following six criteria were specified:
  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.
  2. Develop a proposal for a student organization (in the form of a letter or memo) that would convince a school administrator that such an organization would be worthwhile.
  3. Include specific information in the proposal about how the organization could be facilitated and how it would be beneficial to students.
  4. Indicate any cost involved what facilities would be needed and what sort of faculty, staff and administrative support would be required.
  5. List and briefly describe at least one good resource from which further information about student organizations can be obtained.
  6. Limit the length of the proposal to not more than two pages. It is very important that this document be both diplomatic and factual.
The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

1. Dike, Victor E. - From my own professional experience.

2. Guide to Writing Vocational Teacher Training Programs (Version: December 21, 2001), (Quebec Education).; accessed 12/19/04

I believe that the attached floor plan meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.

RE: Proposal for the Development
of a Networking Technology Club

We currently have over 76 students enrolled in the Basic Computer Networking courses here at Grant High School, and wish to establish a Networking Technology Club for the students. This would provide an excellent context for productive professional interaction for those students and activities that would motivate them and facilitate good public relations both on campus and in the community.

We are fortunate to have facilities and staff that would enable us to establish and maintain a Networking Technology Club at a very minimal and reasonable expense. Club meetings could be held once a week after school in the in the Grant High School Activities Center. Such meetings could easily be scheduled so as not to conflict with other scheduled school events and the use of that facility would not incur any additional expense.

A survey of all our students indicated that 96% of them would join and actively participate in a Networking Technology Club if one were establish here at Grant High School. Further more, all the Computer Networking faculty members support the idea and are willing to volunteer time as club advisors.

The National Association of Computer Professionals (NACP) has the necessary information available for organizing and running such Clubs and they will provide us assistance free of charge. In addition, the NACP does award grants of $5,000,000 to every school that establishes and maintains a successful Networking Technology Club.

The basic liability insurance policy presently in effect here at Grant High School covers all student club activities, and will also cover newly formed clubs at no additional expense.

With your permission, we can develop a timeline for the development of a constitution and bylaws, and call an organizational meeting of all interested students and faculty. And with your approval we could have the club ready before the beginning of the Fall Semester.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I hope to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Your support is very much appreciated.
