RE:                   Per Pupil Professional Development Funds


DATE:             July 22, 2002




The FY ’03 (for 2002-2003) application for the Per Pupil Professional Development (PPPD) funds to support the implementation of the Learning Results is available on the Department of Education’s website.  All school administrative units are eligible for these funds each year.  Each school administrative unit must decide if it wants to receive the funds individually ($8 per pupil) or as part of a consortium ($10 per pupil).  Enrollment is based on October 2001 data.


Some salient points relative to PPPD are:


Ø      All school administrative units must complete a PPPD application to receive the funds.

Ø      Data regarding the use of last year’s funds are necessary for us to report to the Legislature.

Ø      Applications will be accepted from now until November 1, 2002.



Please send the completed application to Tom Keller, Maine Department of Education, 5th Floor, Cross Building, 23 State House Station, Augusta, ME  04333.  Please direct any questions to him at (207) 624-6828 or by e-mailing him at  The application is available at in two formats.



We hope that the application and information are clear and concise, and that the use of these funds assists you in the provision of effective professional development efforts to support the implementation of Learning Results.
