January 7th 2022 Update – The RFP Deadline has been extended from January 15th to January 23rd.
The DC Public Education Fund (DCPEF) is issuing an RFP in order to help DC Public School’s (DCPS’s) goal to double the percent of students, and triple the percentage of at-risk students of color, who are college and career ready by 2022.
The primary purpose of this RFP is for DCPEF to receive proposals from accredited institutions of higher education to plan, coordinate, and deliver a summer IT themed dual enrollment program that provides an opportunity for DCPS rising 11th and 12th grade students to earn college credit, with an option to earn high school credit. Course credit should be eligible for transfer between community and four-year colleges and eligible to count towards an IT-associated major as part of a baccalaureate program.
The request for proposal can be accessed below. Eligible applicants must submit one application with supporting attachments to the attention of the DC Public Education Fund. The application should be formatted as a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application must be received via email no later than January 23, 2022.
