The purpose of this Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) is to solicit replies for activities designed to implement a common assessment instrument in the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) education programs.

Section 1003.52(3)(b), F.S., requires the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE), with the assistance of school districts, to identify and select a common student assessment instrument and assessment procedures for measuring student learning gains and student progress while a student is in a DJJ education program. Currently this assessment applies to students in Prevention, day treatment and residential programs who are in attendance for a minimum of 45 school days.

Historically, the Department has implemented a norm-referenced traditional academic assessment of reading/language arts and mathematics skills. Currently, the Department wishes to pursue academic assessments that align with job/career readiness skills. Skill alignment with expectations of employers should not reduce the rigor of the academic instruction and assessment.

Invitation to Negotiate will be opened at the below address at 11:15 A.M., January 29, 2015.
