US Department of Education

US Department of Education: I attached the actual document with the assigment (option 2) and the instructions for format, ect. 

The Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) education reform law (which was signed into law January 8, 2002) ties federal aid for the schools to the school system meeting academic standards and adhering to policies set by the federal government.

Prepare a report for your Congressperson in the U.S. House of Representatives in which you

-discuss the impact of this legislation on your local school system

-present your recommendation for what should or needs to be done

-AND detail a direct request for some specified action.

To find out who your representative is, go to http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and follow the directions. ****I am in dade city florida

The Formal Report assignment is a formal business report and should follow the conventions as presented in Chapter 12: Writing Reports and Proposals and Chapter 13: Completing Reports and Proposals. In other words, use these chapters of the text as your style guide! Other valuable resources located in your text are Appendix A: Format and Layout of Business Documents, and Appendix B: Documentation of Report Sources. Use graphics (tables, charts, pictures, etc.) to assist you in illustrating your findings. Remember, there is some real validity in the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words. Make certain to refer back to the section in Chapter 12 on Producing and Integrating Visuals as you prepare your report. Your report will be graded for: content, format, style, writing mechanics, and spelling. For this report you will want to include: PREFATORY PARTS  Title page  Letter or memo of transmittal. (Depending on which option you pick, you will need a letter or a memo. Letters go to individuals external to your organization, and memos are for internal correspondence.)  Table of contents and list of illustrations  Executive summary or synopsis (In academic writing, this is called an abstract.) BODY/TEXT  Introduction (must include problem/purpose, scope, background, limitations, organization)  Body (this is where you present your findings, discuss them, and interpret them, and what do you recommend).  Close (what where the key points? This is your call to action, what you want done.) GBA 321 Formal Report Instructions 3 SUPPLEMENTARY  Appendix, if needed (material referred to but not included in the text which you want your audience to see)  References (listing of your sources) Some FAQs about the Formal Report: How long should it be? To cover the assignment, you should plan on needing 4-6 pages of text. This is really not very long if you include pictures and graphics in your report (strongly encouraged). What format should be used? Typically use one-inch margins all around, single-spaced. Use the reference material in the appendices located in the back of the textbook for guidance regarding format. Pages need to be numbered (note the conventions for prefatory pages) and can go either at the bottom or top of the page. Use a font size of between 10 and 12 for the text. Use headers!! Why is it single-spaced? Increasingly readers are reading documents online or at least on a computer screen. Singlespaced is standard business format. Double-spaced is not as easy to read. Remember, the idea is to make the document accessible so the reader reads it! Reader accessibility is also why this report needs to be a single document and not assorted pieces. How do I cite materials? The standard for business is APA format. Use the reference material in the appendices located in the back of the textbook for in-text citation and list of reference formats. Good online sources for citing Internet materials in APA format can be found at APAStyle.org
