Can the word limit for individual text fields in the proposal be increased?

To encourage districts to be concise and refrain from repeating content throughout the proposal, the majority of text fields in the SIG4 Proposal have a default limit of 150 words. Some exceptions are the Needs Assessment Results (Part I: A.), Intervention Rationale (Part I: B.2.), and Families and Communities (Part II: A.4.), which have higher word limits due to the scope of information requested.

As you adjust your responses to fit within the established word limits, keep in mind that the proposal will be reviewed holistically. Therefore, you may be able to find another spot in the SIG4 Proposal where it makes sense to provide some of the detail, such as the Strategy Rationale text field in Step 4 of District Problem Solving.

Should you desire for the BSI team to consider an increase in word limit for a specific question, you may submit a request via Intercom. Given the reviewers will each read up to 24 proposals, please use this option sparingly.
