Summary:
Michelin seeks to develop a website to support their Title 1 initiative. Title I is a part of No Child Left Behind (http://www.ed.gov/nclb/landing.jhtml?src=ln) where additional resources are given to schools where student needs are the greatest. In Title I schools, students receive additional opportunities to help them meet our state's performance standards. 

Overview:
Consultants will develop a website for the "corporate volunteer support for title 1 schools" that contains the following elements:
 

  • Database that lists title 1 elementary schools and corporations interested in volunteering to facilitate "matchmaking"
  • Summary of best practices that have been assembled based on Michelin's experience (provided by Michelin).
  • Summary of roles and responsibilities of key actors for the school and corporate volunteers (provided by Michelin).
  • "Needs assessment" format for the schools to structure and formalize their volunteer support needs.
  • An on-line scheduling tool that facilitates the scheduling of volunteers between the school and the corporate volunteer organization

 Consultants will work with, and present their work to, Scott Clark, COO Michelin North America.
