Job Description

Project description

The client seeks proposers to provide flexible, supportive, individualized, and multimodal academic skill-building and academic credit recovery services to youth who are 14 through 24 years old and are connected to the client systems. Ideally, proposers will partner with
youth, families, and schools to support learners. This project seeks to support youth with building core subject skills (math, science, English/language arts, social studies) and recovering academic credits for progress toward a high school diploma or GED.
Learning opportunities must be individualized and provide options for competency-based assessments, immersive learning, and differentiated assignments.
Academic skill-building and credit recovery services provided to County-involved youth ages 14 through 24 years.

Services to be provided include, but are not limited to the following:

Academic transcript reviews to identify credit recovery needs;
Differentiated curriculum support for diverse learning needs;
Regular progress checks with the priority population;
Technology support for online/hybrid services access;
Tutoring or other 1:1 academic content support;
Awarding of secondary level academic credit;
Culturally and linguistically specific and culturally affirming services; and
Post-secondary transition support.

Expected outcomes

Contracted vendors will support learners in both core subject skill building and academic credit
recovery to ensure progress toward completion of requirements for a high school diploma.
Outcomes expected include, but are not limited to the following:
Create individualized, differentiated curricula appropriate to each youth;
Target academic skill building, particularly for math and reading;
Provide individualized academic supports to assist youth with successful credit recovery;
Award academic credit;
Increase graduation rates;
Increase post-secondary education and career readiness; and
Reduce existing educational disparities for youth connected to the client systems,
particularly youth of color.
By facilitating credit recovery programming that augments school-based efforts, the client can
ensure youth connected to the client systems have access to educational opportunities that
reduce gaps through accessible, flexible, multi-modal, and highly supportive education services.
