Item 131 #1s

Education: Elementary and Secondary
Department of Education, Central Office Operations

Page 108, after line 17, insert:
"C. The Department shall reconsider the planned cycle for issuance of the next Request for Proposals (RFP)  that solicits additional sealed proposals from qualified sources to serve as Low Achieving Schools Turnaround Partners on an as-needed, when-needed basis to develop and implement an academic program for one or more of the core discipline areas of mathematics, science, history/social science and language arts for students in persistently low-achieving Virginia public schools."

(This amendment is intended to encourage the opportunity for more options for school divisions in selecting Lead Turnaround Partners from the state list, if they do not choose to pursue a local RFP.)
