May we include action steps beyond Year 1 in the proposal?
Yes, action steps for Years 2-5 may be entered in District Problem Solving, if desired. However, it is important to note that no single action step should span more than one award year; this means that all Year 1 action steps should have start and end dates that occur during the period beginning August 1, 2017, and ending July 31, 2018. All Year 2 action steps should occur between August 1, 2018, and July 31, 2019, and so on.
While action steps beyond Year 1 can be included in the proposal, budget lines should only be added for Year 1 action steps! That is, do not add budget lines to action steps occurring in Years 2-5; a one-year budget will be built annually during the renewal process.
