Individuals and organizations with expertise in providing Expanded Learning Opportunities are invited to participate in the RFQ process. The RFQ process was designed to determine which entities have a track record of successfully achieving positive academic outcomes tied to key Levy outcomes and indicators. RFQ-approved entities are then eligible to contract with Levy-funded schools for amounts exceeding $5,000 per school year.
Entities anticipating receiving $5,000 or less in cumulative Levy funding during a school year through school contracts do NOT need to complete the RFQ process. Vendors selling educational products (e.g., textbooks, curricula, intervention software applications) do NOT need to complete the RFQ process.
No funding is awarded as part of the RFQ process, nor is there any guarantee of work to any entity that is successfully approved through this process. Once approved, an individual/organization will remain approved for the duration of the current Levy, as long as it continues to achieve Levy outcome and indicator results.
