How can I write a letter to a school principal requesting permission to allow my team to hold a literacy program in her school?

Write a letter introducing yourself and your organization, briefly explain what your organization does, and ask for a meeting.
At that meeting, share your research and proposal for your program.
Understand that they might not get back to you immediately, especially during the busy times of year.
The summer might be a good time to reach out, as most school administrators work throughout the summer, but the day-to-day is a little less intense.

Dear Madam,
my name is, (your full name) from company (company name).
Today I write this letter to you as I am interested in holding a literacy program in your school alongside with my team.
(Give abit of background on the company- what the company offers, costs, why you want to hold the program in her school).
Thank you for your attention and I hope to hear back from you soon.
Yours sincerely,
(your name)

That has wonderful purpose, I encourage you.
The first step is to develop a Plan for the Program.
Use a template or software if you like.
Basically the steps are to identify the problem.
Do your demographic research.
B\Present statistics to support your goals.
Then identify the requirements of each position and hire only these people.
Friends and family are difficult to manage, personally, I do not recommend.
Perhaps these may find a place on your Board of Directors.
Seek corporate sponsorship, and recruit Board members.
You will always need funding .
Decide if you want to become a non-profit, not for profit or a for organization.
Think about your personal goals.
Are you interested in doing this for a long period or is there another driving force? Can or are you willing to use your own funds.
Who will cover the insurances needed by your state? Know your state mandates.
Once you get through processing this hit me back.
In my opinion a letter now is premature.
Remember you are building your legacy.

Simply write the letter outlining what you want to do & how it would be beneficial, not only to the school, but to the students….
Request a sit down meeting with to discuss your plans…… Also, get a petition of signatures from all ages & classes (including teachers) and get as a much as you can.
BUT, do your research on activism & literacy & famous people who helped literacy….
.
So you can be prepared with all the knowledge, when you speak to others & the Principal.
Make posters….
.
Do something unique to grab peoples attention.

Make an appointment with your principal’s secretary to see your principal in person.
This is something you should discuss face to face.
Letters (and their requests) get lost in the shuffle of papers.
If this is really important to you, I suggest you ask for a meeting and discuss the literacy program in person.
You will have a much better outcome.

Find a teacher who you know and trust and ask them if they would sponsor the club.
That is how extra clubs and programs work.
If it doesn’t cost money, and isn’t a political issue, principals are happy to see you take initiative.
They just want to be sure it is something that they can take credit for in case it gets noticed.
So make it simple and send them an email update once a month if you get it going.
Not only will you keep their interest, but this gives them the information to share when they are taking credit.
What they must know is this: who is going to turn in the paperwork, who is going to supervise (without pay) the students during this activity, and who can I come find to blame if something goes wrong.
Teachers don’t want the credit.
They want to know that it is going to make a difference for you.
Show them how this will make a difference for students.
Show them other programs that are similar.
Show them how it can be done for free.
Put all this info in a proposal and deliver it to them with a short explanation.
What the teacher must know is this: who is going to do all the paperwork that I have to turn in, is there a way to fund-raise for this since I won’t get paid and can’t afford anymore spending on my students as much as I want to, and are you going to show up and follow the rules so I don’t get blamed for anything.
This is what a club sponsor does.
I have done it for many years with Science Club and several competitions, overnight telescope campouts, and science fairs.
I would talk to the teacher first.
Give them a proposal with your ideas, ask them to think about it and tell them you will come by in 2 days, if that is convenient, to talk more about it.
When you show up 2 days later, they will know this isn’t some impulsive thing.
Teachers are used to students with grand, creative ideas who forget about it tomorrow.
By showing up several days later, on schedule, they will know you are serious and can keep an appointment.
This will probably be enough.
Teachers just love to help people who need help.
After that, this sponsor (sometimes called coach or advisor) will direct you on what else to do.
Do all of the work you can for them, especially paperwork.
Teachers are drowning in paperwork and will appreciate not having more.
Have fun!

Make an appointment to meet with her.
Bring supporting documents to help you describe the program and its benefits.
Ask whether she can authorize this or whether she needs to work through the school board.
If so, and if she supports your program, ask for her assistance.

As another answer said – have your plan for the program worked out in detail.
Have a Business Plan basically.
About the program, how much space you need, how much time you need, what facilities youll need, etc.
Then i would call and make an appointment to speak with the principal in person.
It may be that youll need to also make a presentation to the local School Board as there are a lot of legal concerns in allowing outside programs to use school property.
Safety, at least one staff person that may have to be paid over time to remain to guard and lock up after the progrsm is over, etc.
Possibly start with a preliminary letter introducing the idea then requesting an appointment but follow that up with a call to actually make an apppointment.
And be prepared to make another apppointment for whenever the next Board meeting is.

This sounds to me like something that required a meeting at which you could present the details of the program with some literature and the principal would be able to ask questions.
Building use often is a school board decisions, so I would ask the parent teacher association about this before setting up a meeting with the principal.
It would probably help to bring research that indicates that literacy programs have a positive impact on the whole community, because it would be more convincing if presented in this manner.
