REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS
Traffic Safety Education
Riverview School District No. 407 is accepting written Qualifications for providing Traffic Safety Education Services to District students for the period October 1, 2022, through August 31, 2023.
The selected respondent will provide traffic safety education services (the “Services”) to interested District students at District facilities. The District will not guarantee any minimum enrollment but anticipates that high school students enrolled within the District will access the Services outside of regular District educational instruction. The District will provide the respondent with a physical classroom space for the Services, at the for profit facility use rental rate, but will not provide any associated equipment, vehicles, supplies, or administrative support, and will not provide any monetary compensation to the selected respondent. The Services may be offered to District students through the respondent’s business enterprise. The District does not intend that any respondent services be a District-provided service or to be certified through the Office of the Superintendent of Instruction as a Traffic Safety Education course offered by the District.
Qualifications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. on September 17, 2022.
