|SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS|
|Approve the Purchase of Ellevation Education Software from Ellevation Inc. (Sole-Source Provider) (Office of Teaching and Learning)|
|Ellevation Education Software organizes all English Language Learner (ELL) information and data for a school district into one dashboard. It allows teachers, specialists, and administrators to collaborate on individual ELL instructional plans and goals; monitor the academic and language acquisition progress of English language learners; communicate with parents; and access districtwide aggregate assessment data.
The Ellevation InClass component of the dashboard allows classroom teachers to identify ELL students and access their Individual Education Plan (IEP) in order to organize and plan instruction accordingly, tract test taking accommodations for current students, as well as receive information for reclassified students who have been exited from the program and require subsequent follow-up monitoring.
In accordance with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) Purchasing Policy 6A-1.012(12)(d), commodities on contractual service available from only a single source may be exempted from the competitive solicitation requirements. When a district school board believes that commodities or contractual service are available only from a single source as specified by the FLDOE, the district school board may negotiate on the best terms and conditions with the single source vendor.
|• Continuously improve processes and systems|
|FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted: Yes)|

|Evaluation continued on attachment.|
