Please remember that within this DESE Portal you have an excellent resource allowing you to share program information. All you have to do is click on the “Grantee Forum” tab and you can type questions or respond to questions already posted. Your name will not appear unless you type it in the body of your message.
Many questions were previously posted before the Portal was restored. If I (Cindy Heislen) retype the questions, my name will display as having asked the question -- this isn't a DESE question/answer resource -- it is yours. So please repost your messages if you are still seeking answers -- again, YOUR name will not appear unless you type it in yourself.
How Do I Use This Feature?
To respond to a posted question: click on the line containing the question. Then click on the “post reply” button and type your response in the box labeled 'replies'. Then just click on “save and close” and your response is posted. It’s that simple.
To post a question: click on “add new discussion” at the bottom of the page (left side of the screen). Type a subject line (title of question) and then in the text box, type the details of what you are looking for or requesting from other grantees. Then just click on “save and close” and your question is posted. Check back periodically for responses to your question. It’s that simple.
Please be sure that you take advantage of this resource and help other grantees when they are in need by posting responses to their questions when they appear.
