Request for Proposals (Contractor/Consultant)

Teaching for Change seeks to expand the impact of its nationally recognized approach to family engagement by preparing one of its signature activities for replication, Parent-Principal Chats. We are seeking the services of a D.C.-based consultant (an individual or firm) to partner with us to design the strategy for refining, packaging, and marketing Parent-Principal Chats to a broader audience.

The selected consultant(s) will be primarily responsible for three phases of work:

Phase 1: Designing the strategy to revise existing Parent-Principal Chit Chat materials and related trainings – including a training manual and training program – to ensure effective implementation by schools and school districts

Phase 2: Creating a financial plan to enable Teaching for Change to package and disseminate the materials and training

Phase 3: Designing a marketing and communications plan for promoting Parent-Principal Chats beyond our current cohort of elementary DCPS partner schools DC Public Schools

Teaching for Change is expecting this to be a multi-phased project and is open to working with more than one consultant given that the project requires program design, marketing, and communications expertise. If more than one consultant will be involved, please submit a joint proposal outlining what each consultant will bring to the work.

Proposals must be received by January 15, 2019, by 5 PM Eastern Standard Time.  Applying before the deadline is highly encouraged. (Read the full RFP)

Teaching for Change is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, arrest record or criminal convictions, political affiliation, sexual orientation or gender identity, disability, sex, or age.
