Prequalification of academic programs 

The prequalification selection (PQS) process creates a pool of qualified service providers to deliver high-quality programs, including professional development, academic interventions, student support, and after-school and summer programming. Schools can select an approved service provider with the confidence and knowledge that they are investing in a high-quality, research-based program with demonstrated success.

Unlike the district's traditional solicitation process, which limits approved providers to awards for a three-year period, PQS allows for the ongoing qualification of new service providers. Respondents to solicitations must use this template to submit cost proposals.
