SUMMARY

The Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) is charged with helping to ensure children are prepared to enter school and helping to close the achievement and opportunity gaps by providing high quality early learning opportunities to Seattle's 3- and 4-year-old children. To do so, DEEL is requesting applications from qualified Proposers to deliver high-quality preschool services. There are two options for responding to the RFI for the 2015-16 school year: 


1. If your organization meets all of the eligibility requirements, you can apply to become a provider of the Seattle Preschool Program (SPP). 


2. If your organization does not currently meet the eligibility requirements, but has the capacity to do so with additional support, you can apply to the Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) Pathway.   Providers can be on the SPP Pathway for up to 2 years with the intention of applying to become a provider for SPP in 2016, 2017, or 2018.
