Thank you for this report! Could you expand a little on the impact (if any) beyond the audience number? Was there any feedback? Any new volunteers? Interest in cooperation among teachers? Media coverage? Thanks. Ijon 22:55, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

One of the main reasons why we made this project was that the teachers mostly say things like DO NOT USE WIKIPEDIA. NEVER in schools and no one never talks how to use it (+ most of them actually know nothing about Wikipedia).
No new volunteers and no media coverage (at least jet – report of the survey is not ready and that is what we would like to get into media).
I think that more cooperation has to be done with schools and I have also made some plans to start educational courses for teachers. So some reasons for this project were also that to gain more knowledge about the use of Wikipedia in schools and to find some contacts with the schools that may be interested of cooperation.

I see a very interesting set of ideas and projects. I would like to see some analysis of why the last year grant was not used and the actions to take to ovoid those causes. I think it could help you in succeeding this time if you identify the team in charge for the activities, define who will be responsible for doing what, and raise their commitment with the project by asking them to sign in the proposal.--Josepnogue 08:55, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Documentation of expenditures[edit]

Not requested by WMF. At this time, WMF only required grantees to produce receipts when requested, although it is now our standard practice to request receipts from all grantees.

Request for reallocation to Start Up II[edit]

This request was approved by WMF. Funds are accounted for in the report for Start Up II.Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 22:09, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
