Answers to Submitted Questions

Below are some questions HCOE received during the submission period, with their answers.
Question list updated Sept. 29, 2022, 9:17 a.m.

  1. What is the student enrollment that will be covered by the contract resulting from this RFP?
    560 students across three schools located at 18-20 school sites.
  2. The RFP mentions a reference form that we were not able to find in the initial documents. Can the Office of Education provide that form to us?
    Yes, the Bid Reference Form is now available here.
  3. Would the Humboldt County Office of Education (“County Office”) please clarify whether it is working to become a service agency providing central site support for multiple districts in the county? If so, how many districts would be licensing the new system under that support agreement, and what is the enrollment count of each of those districts?
    HCOE  endeavors to secure a contract for internally operated programs that would be live by July 1, 2023 due to the contract with our current SIS provider. While this RFP is for internal programs, HCOE is working with other districts to explore an even larger consortium.  These are two separate actions, even though they may combined should districts determine that the SIS that the county chooses would also fit their needs.
  4. How many districts would the County Office expect to bring live by July 1, 2023?
    HCOE is the only district expected to be live by July 1, 2023 at this time.
  5. If all districts are expected to be live on the new system by July 1, 2023, would the County Office consider an alternate implementation timeframe which would be planned in such a way so the County Office and 1 to 2 districts would be brought live by July 2023, and the remaining districts in 2024?
    This question is not able to be answered at this time as this RFP is for the HCOE programs only.
