"C. The Department shall issue, on or before August 1, 2015, a Request for Proposals (RFP) that is substantially identical to RFP# DOE-LASTP-2013-04 and 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. The deadline for submitting responses to the new RFP shall be no longer than sixty days from its issue date.  This new RFP shall have no impact on any contracts awarded under the previous 2013 RFP and the initial contract period for any contracts awarded as a result of this new 2015 RFP shall be for a period that coincides with the term entered into under the 2013 RFP and be renewable."
