ANNOUNCEMENT

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL FOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TO DEVELOP AND EXECUTE A MODEL TO ENSURE A PATHWAY TO POSTSECONDARY SUCCESS

 

The Puerto Rico Department of Education (PRDE) has put forth a Consolidated State Plan in accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). As part of said Plan, the PRDE has stated that it strongly believes it is important for students in Puerto Rico to continue their education after high school. To reach this goal, the PRDE is focused on supporting new models that help students develop the full range of competencies necessary for successful transitions to post-secondary education and career in today’s global economy and society.


These competencies can be developed through a variety of opportunities in the community beyond the traditional high school walls. Strong connections with business and community organizations enable schools to provide meaningful opportunities for career exploration and immersion, as well as an introduction to the realities of the workplace.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is the next stage of PRDE’s education strategy to support a new vision for young people on the path to adult success. The PRDE seeks to support and learn alongside the community in developing a model to ensure that all students can achieve college or other post-secondary certification and progress on the pathway to adult and workforce success.


The PRDE seeks to develop and scale—through a new model—student access to high-quality learning experiences that look beyond traditional classrooms and programs of study to effectively boost students’ college and career readiness and successful post-secondary transitions. This RFP is intended to support the planning and design of a comprehensive model that blends the lines between high school, college, career, and the community. Further, the RFP is intended to support the design of schools that open all post-secondary options to all students and help students identify their interests and goals.
