Sorry for the late entry here.... I often get inquiries about potential
funding sources.... Phil gave a quick response regarding federal funding.
Below I've copied an e-mail I recently sent to someone ask for similar
information to Tom's request.

Hey, all of you in the big K-12 technology world.  We are looking for some
money (@ $40,000) to help us better integrate data into action planning and
professional development.  Anybody aware of grants that might target such
endeavors?
