Section 1: It's Time to Speak Up!
First things first, let's address the elephant in the room. We need to break free from the belief that teachers are solely responsible for funding their classrooms. It's time to advocate for ourselves and communicate our needs effectively. We'll help you navigate the process and ensure your voice is heard. After all, effective vocabulary instruction is crucial for student success.

Section 3: Winning Over the Decision-Makers
Now, let's get down to business. Who do you need to talk to in your school system to make this happen? The key players are typically your school administrators, department heads, and curriculum coordinators. They hold the power to approve your requisition. Here's your step-by-step guide to making a persuasive case:
1. Craft a Compelling Proposal:
We've got you covered with a pre-written Rational/Proposal Letter Template. It saves you time and ensures a polished request. Personalize it to fit your specific needs and style, then simply print or hit send!
2. Align with Standards:
Show your administrators how Vocab Vigor perfectly aligns with your curriculum objectives and the Common Core State Standards. This is crucial for gaining their attention and support. This isn't some fluff program--it is a hard-hitting standards machine.
3. Boost Those Test Scores:

6. Teacher Retention Matters:

Section 4: Flexible Payment Options
We understand that managing payments can be a concern for schools when it comes to investing in educational resources like Vocab Vigor. That's why we've got you covered with flexible payment options that make it easier for your school to budget effectively. You can choose between two convenient plan lengths: monthly payments or a one-time payment for the entire school year.
If you opt for monthly payments, you can spread out the cost over several months, making it more manageable for your school's budget. It's like taking small bites instead of a big gulp! Not sure if it's a perfect fit for you? No worries. You have a 14-day free trial waiting for you, AND you can cancel your plan at any time.
On the other hand, if your school prefers simplicity, you can go for the one-time payment option, making a single transaction for the whole school year. No need to worry about monthly reminders or juggling payments. Another bonus? We knock off several dollars for the one-time payments. We want to ensure that bringing Vocab Vigor into your classroom is as seamless as possible, and that includes making payments easy-peasy.

1. Follow the School's Requisition Process:
Contact your school's purchasing department to understand the requisition process. They'll guide you through the necessary steps.
