PURPOSE:
The intent and purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit and obtain services of a qualified
Offeror to deliver curriculum for English/Language Arts and Mathematics in grades K-8 for a firm, fixed
price non-exclusive contract(s) to meet the current and future need to provide rigorous, relevant
instruction to all students. Richmond City Public Schools (hereafter referred to as RPS) is looking for
comprehensive, robust, engaging curricula, instructional materials and implementation support to
facilitate the effective use of curricula in both Mathematics and English/Language Arts content areas for
elementary and middle schools.
RPS seeks vendors with an existing product and significant experience working with similar K-12
educational users, along with a demonstrated knowledge of curriculum design that enables all students
to be ready for college and career.
BACKGROUND:
The School Board is the official governing body for the Richmond Public Schools, herein referred to
as RPS, and derives its authority from the Code of Virginia. RPS is an urban, PreK-12 school system
with approximately 24,700 students in 44 schools; 25 elementary schools
(grades PreK-5), 7 middle schools (grades 6-8), 5 comprehensive high schools (grades 9-12), and 3
specialty schools, 2 charter schools, 1 alternative school, 5 regional preschool centers, and 5 adult
education programs. RPS’ strategic plan, Dreams for RPS (https://www.rvaschools.net/Page/5346), is
guided by our three core values of equity, engagement, and excellence and focuses on the following
areas over the next five years:
1) Exciting and Rigorous Teaching and Learning;
2) Skilled and Supported Staff;
3) Safe and Loving School Cultures;
4) Deep Partnership with Families and Community; and 5) Modern Systems and Infrastructure.
OVERVIEW:
As a part of RPS’ strategic plan, the first priority of ensuring exciting and rigorous teaching and learning
states that Action 1.3 is to “adopt new English and math curricula– not just textbooks – that are
rigorous, hands-on, and engaging.” Currently, RPS teachers use the Curriculum Pacing Resource (CPR)
RPS RFP# 20-6944-01

which has been created by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to construct lesson plans for
Tier 1 instruction, which is based on the Virginia Department of Education curriculum overviews. Each
curriculum guide links directly to course-level, division level, and state-level (SOL) learning standards
and is designed to provide differentiated instruction. RPS seeks to replace CPRs with a comprehensive
curriculum. In order to provide students with engaging and rigorous learning opportunities, the
instructional strategy of RPS is to adopt a vertically-aligned, comprehensive curriculum that includes
year-long course overviews, sequencing and pacing guidance, units or modules, daily lesson plans, and
formative assessments. To accompany the curriculum, instructional resources will be selected so that
teachers have the materials needed to fully utilize the curriculum. To enable the effective and optimal
use of the curriculum, RPS seeks to partner with organizations that can provide implementation support
that enables teachers, teacher leaders, school leaders, and division level instructional staff to deeply
understand the content and design of a rigorous and engaging curriculum, as well as the practices and
structures that support instructional planning and preparation to enable all students to be successful
with the grade-level curriculum.
1. SCOPE OF WORK
RPS is seeking curriculum for K-5 Mathematics, 6-8 Mathematics, K-2 English/Language Arts, 3-5
English/Language Arts, and 6-8 Language Arts in addition to instructional resources and implementation
support to enable effective use of the curriculum to improve teaching and learning. The proposed
curriculum should show alignment to the Virginia Standards of Learning
(English: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/sol/standards_docs/english/index.shtml and Math:
http://www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/sol/standards_docs/mathematics/index.shtml). The intent of this
solicitation is to provide RPS with products and services to meet these requirements, as detailed below.
A. Curriculum
A comprehensive curriculum includes year-long course overviews, sequencing and pacing guidance,
units or modules, daily lesson plans, and both formative and summative assessments. Curriculum is to
be educative, meaning it should not just help teachers in the delivery of the curriculum, but should also
expand the content knowledge of the teacher. Curriculum is to be aligned to the knowledge and skills
students need to be prepared for college and career and enables learners to demonstrate the attributes
outlined in the Virginia Profile of a Graduate. Offerors may choose to submit a proposal for one
curriculum content grade band (K-2 English/Language Arts, 3-5 English/Language Arts, 6-8
English/Language Arts, K-5 Mathematics, 6-8 Mathematics) or all curriculum content grade areas.
