I have an app idea that I'm working on to help school kids with bullying. I discussed this with a local vice principal and he liked the idea. I'm a developer and am learning to develop mobile apps, enough to at least get a prototype going. He's going to introduce me to people who work for the larger school district who most likely controls the way things proceed. I should be able to get a basic prototype going myself.
So the question is how to go about pitching and developing the project - do I charge them from day one or do a free pilot project? I don't know what type of budgets the schools would have for this. Do it for free for them and then sell the idea to other school districts? I have so many other questions but let's leave it at this for now :)
