CDE’s 2021-2022 School and District Support Request for Information (RFI)

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) invites partners to join the state’s effort to transform low performing schools and ensure that all students have access to schools that prepare them to be college and career ready.  Interested partners may have the opportunity to engage with district and  school leaders to support school improvement efforts by providing services in six categories:

  • Charter Networks, Charter Management Organizations and/or Individual Charter Schools

  • Turnaround Leadership Development Providers

  • Management Providers

  • School Improvement Support Providers

  • Family-School-Community Partnership Providers

  • Diagnostic Review and Planning Providers

Given the disruptions and innovations caused by COVID-19, all new and previously approved partners will be required to complete a new RFI to provide updated information about their organizations' supports or services.

The School and District Support RFI overview document provides all of the information needed for organizations to apply, including context and greater detail for each of the six categories of service.  To apply, please complete the RFI process described below.
