Your writing assignment for this week is to write a persuasive memorandum. You are a CIO of a company and also a member of your local school board. You are trying to convince the other members to consider making Information Systems/Technology a required course in the high school curriculum. You should give at least two reasons why this is important enough to be a required course and explain why you feel this way. This one-and-a-half to two-page memo must conform to the standard memorandum layout.
You are trying to convince your colleagues that investing money and time into implementing an IS course is a good idea and will be beneficial to the students. To this point, you should explain information systems and its importance. Remember also that you are speaking to people who may not be well-versed in technology. They will have a basic understanding of low-level technology, but no knowledge of technology on your level. You must put the memo in words that they can understand and yet not seem like you are talking down to them.
If you don't know how to type a proper memo, please look at the links below:

For this assignment, the 2-page minimum is not used. For the memo, brevity is important, so the memo must be a minimum of 1.5 pages and a maximum of 2 pages, meaning that it must be at least one and a half pages long, but no longer than two (using standard 12 point font with 1" margins). This assignment should also follow the line spacing rules for memos. You must also remember that when trying to be persuasive, grammar, punctuation and spelling are of the utmost importance. If you send a memo that has mistakes, they will be less likely to take the situation as seriously. When you are finished, please submit your paper by clicking on the title of this assignment above and attaching it. You should not put a standard name, class, assignment heading on this paper, because your information should be in the "from" section of the memo. Remember that you are to address this to either the school board in general or Mr. Smith (the head of the school board), not to me.
