Full RFP Document:

Continued Development, Administration, and Reporting of Teacher Certification Assessments for New York State Teachers and Educational Leaders as part of the New York State Certification Examinations (NYSTCE) Testing Program

Overview

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) Office of State Assessment (OSA) is requesting proposals for the continued implementation of the New York State Certification Examinations (NYSTCE) Testing Program. Services include revision, enhancement, development, administration, and reporting of all Teacher Certification Assessments (excluding the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA), the Assessment for Teaching Skills-Written (ATS-W) Elementary, and the ATS-W Secondary) as well as any and all additional instruments deemed necessary by NYSED for the certification for New York State teachers, teaching assistants, and educational leaders. Section 1.3.1 of this RFP lists NYSTCE component tests for which the contractor will be responsible. Each of these component tests falls into one of three categories: Category 1 – recently created or revised NYSTCE custom-designed tests, Category 2 – NYSTCE custom-designed tests to be revised, and Category 3 – existing NYSTCE custom-designed tests. For Category 1 tests, the contractor is required to continue the development, enhancement, administration, and reporting of the tests. For Category 2 tests, the contractor is required to revise these tests, and then continue the development, enhancement, administration, and reporting of the tests. For Category 3, the contractor is required to continue test administration and reporting of the existing NYSTCE test forms. The contractor must provide these tasks in each category for NYSED, for the length of the contract, and any contract extension.

These examinations are required pursuant to Part 80 of Chapter II (Regulations of the Commissioner of Education), in Title 8 (of the Education Law) of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules, and Regulations of the State of New York (8 NYCRR) published by the Department of State. These examinations implement the Commissioner’s Regulations that require prospective New York State educators, school leaders, and teaching assistants to pass designated tests as a requirement for receiving State certification pursuant to Education Law §§3001 and 3003. New York State teachers, teaching assistants, school leaders, and pupil personnel service providers are required to hold a New York State certificate in order to be employed in the State’s public schools.  The certificates are issued by the Office of Teaching Initiatives and certify that an individual has met certain requirements. The NYSTCE program includes a test for the teaching assistant certification, tests for teacher certification, and tests for school leadership certification, in addition to the Bilingual Education Assessment (BEA) and the Communication and Quantitative Skills Test (CQST).

RFP #15-021: Evaluation of the New York State Charter Schools Program
Full RFP Document:

Evaluation of the New York State Charter Schools Program

Overview

New York State was awarded its most recent Charter Schools Program (CSP) grant from the United States Department of Education (USDE) in 2011.  The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is seeking proposals to conduct a statewide evaluation of CSP, focusing on promising features of program implementation in new charter schools and the extent to which those features are promulgated to current and potential charter school operators as well as to traditional district schools.  It will also examine charter schools’ access to and use of CSP funds as well as any outcomes that speak to the effectiveness or need for improvement of the CSP grant program. 

The evaluation is intended to improve:

  • the processes used by the State’s two active new charter school  authorizers, the New York State Board of Regents and the State University of New York (SUNY), to consider and act on high-quality charter applications1;
  • the quality of operating charter schools; and
  • sharing of best practices between charter school operators, traditional district schools, potential charter school applicant groups, and NYSED.
In identifying existing successes and challenges, NYSED and SUNY will be better positioned to move forward with CSP program management and overall support of the State’s charter schools.

1 2010 revisions to the New York Charter Schools Act removed the authority for local school districts to approve new charter schools. New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) and the Buffalo Board of Education each oversee a portfolio of charter schools authorized by them prior to the change. Each of these authorizers can make recommendations for charter revision and/or charter renewal for Board of Regents approval, but may not authorize new charter schools.

Application Deadline Completed applications are due at NYSED, as detailed in the Proposal Submission section of the RFP, no later than February 23, 2016 by 3:00 PM

Refer to the full RFP documents for complete instructions.

RFQ #15-004: Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Providers
Full RFQ Document:

Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Providers

Description

To implement the provisions of Education Law §3012-d relating to annual professional performance reviews of classroom teachers and building principals, the New York State Education Department (“NYSED” or “Department”), is soliciting application for Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics that will be used as part of teacher and principal evaluations.  THIS SOLICITATION WILL NOT RESULT IN A CONTRACT WITH THE NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT.  NYSED will use the objective criteria specified within to review such proposals and will generate a new list of Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Under §3012-d. This list will be available at: http://usny.nysed.gov/rttt/teachers-leaders/practicerubrics/home.html

On April 13, 2015, the Governor signed Chapter 56 of the Laws of 2015 to add a new Education Law §3012-d to establish a new evaluation system for classroom teachers and building principals.  As a result, during the June 2015 meeting of the Board of Regents, Subpart 30-2 was amended and a new Subpart 30-3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents was added as an emergency adoption in order to implement Education Law §3012-d. 

The new law requires teachers and principals to be evaluated based on two categories: the Student Performance Category and the Observation/School Visit Category.  The Observation/School Visit Category is made up of three subcomponents, required observations/school visits by supervisors or other trained administrators, required observations/school visits by impartial independent trained evaluator(s)1, and optional observations/school visits by trained peer educators.  Section 30-3.9 of the Rules of the Board of Regents requires the Commissioner to evaluate teacher and principal practice rubrics based on the criteria outlined in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ).  Such rubrics include those previously placed on the list of “Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics” pursuant to Education Law §3012-c. Rubrics approved under the previous list will be deemed as approved for use under Education Law §3012-d unless disqualified by the Department or withdrawn by the provider.  For new rubrics, or updates to rubrics approved under Education Law §3012-c, submissions must be made to this RFQ in order to be approved for use under Education Law §3012-d. All applicants, both new and those with rubrics approved under the previous list, are encouraged to complete and submit Form F to provide supplemental information about how their rubrics align with Education Law §3012-d.

All approved providers who meet the criteria specified in this RFQ will be included in this list.  The list will be maintained by NYSED.  No funding is directly associated with this application for approval.

The approved list will be updated at least annually.  There will be an opportunity for new applicants to demonstrate that their organization meets the requirements on a schedule to be determined and published by NYSED.  Providers of teacher and/or principal practice rubric services may also be removed from the list subject to the conditions specified within this RFQ.


1During the September 2015 Board of Regents meeting, Subpart 30-3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents was amended to provide for a waiver from the requirement that at least one observation/school visit be conducted by one or more impartial independent trained evaluators selected and trained by the district for rural school districts or school districts with only one registered school pursuant to §100.18 of the Commissioner’s regulations that, due to the size and limited resources of the school district, is unable to obtain an independent evaluator within a reasonable proximity without an undue burden. Where a waiver has been granted, the district must instead conduct such observations/school visits utilizing one or more evaluators selected and trained by the district who are different than the evaluator(s) that conducted the observations/school visits required to be performed by the principal/supervisor or other trained administrator.
Questions

Any questions concerning this RFQ must be emailed to: RubricRFQ@nysed.gov. Answers to questions received by October 21 will be posted no later than November 4. Thereafter, questions and responses will be posted on a quarterly basis.  The submitted questions and responses will be made available on the Questions and Answers page.
