A School District press release says that the process for year two of the Renaissance Schools process starts today with their Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for turnaround teams.
The process is getting an earlier start this year. Last year the RFQ went out on January 27, with providers assigned to schools in May.
According to the press release:
"Responses to the RFQ will be due on November 2, 2010, with the District announcing qualified respondents in mid-November. Each of these pre-qualified respondents will be invited to submit detailed proposals that will be reviewed by an evaluation committee. The District expects to finalize matches between turnaround teams and Renaissance Schools in March of 2011 for a September 2011 opening."
