Westside Community Schools Soliciting Bids for External Evaluator
Westside Community Schools in Omaha, Nebraska, is now soliciting bids from qualified firms to serve as the External Evaluator for its Elementary and Secondary School Counseling program.  The program is funded by a three-year United States Department of Education grant, and the External Evaluator position is provided for the life of the grant. The External Evaluator will work closely with the District to guide the program’s evaluation to ensure the availability of data for regular program review and the completion of required reports.
 
The program’s focus will be on promoting academic success and behavioral, social, and emotional development of all students.  An increase of student engagement and a decrease in discipline referrals are two main goals.  In addition, the program aims to close the achievement gap in regards to low-income students.
 
The program addresses the needs of all district students, pre-K through 12th grade.  An increase in mental health personnel, addition and enhancement of programs, and related professional development are included. 

The RFP document is available for review at this link.  Proposals are due on Wednesday, Feb. 11, at 2 p.m.
