This solicitation will not result in a contract with the State Education Department. NYSED will use the objective criteria specified within to review such proposals and will prepare a list of Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics That list is available at: http://usny.nysed.gov/rttt/teachers-leaders/practicerubrics/home.html


This RFQ is specific to those rubric providers who are seeking to be placed on NYSED’s list of Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics.

  • Community based organizations;
  • Charter management organizations;
  • Libraries;
  • Private companies;

  • Teacher or administrator unions;
  • Nonprofit organizations; and
