Professional Development Options for Early Learning Providers
VDOE solicited proposals for professional development options for early learning providers through:
- Request for Proposal (RFP) # DOE-PDO-2015-11 (PDF)
- Attachment 1 – Revised Response Template for Professional Development Offering (PDF)
- Addendum (PDF)
The resulting contract awards provide school divisions the option to purchase professional development options directly; however, school divisions may choose other solutions not on this list through locally-initiated procurements. All of the awarded vendors met the minimal requirements of the RFP; however, school divisions are encouraged to consider a number of factors before entering into discussions with any vendor. School divisions using VPI+ grant award funds to purchase professional development options for early learning providers must seek prior approval through appropriate VPI+ staff within the VDOE Office of Humanities and Early Childhood.
Please see information within each professional development provider’s contract regarding certification of compliance with the Code of Virginia 22.1-296.1 (Data on convictions for certain crimes and child abuse and neglect required.)
The Summary of Awards (PDF) provides an overview of the contracts awarded and the final negotiated prices, but school divisions must review the details of the contract before issuing a purchase order.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Mark Allan, Contract Administrator, Preschool Expansion Grant Coordinator, or Marie Williams, Contract Officer, at 804-225-2040 or at Marie.Williams@doe.virginia.gov.
