Family Empowerment Centers Evaluator

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.

Funding Description

The California Department of Education determined that none of the proposals it received in response to the first release of the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the evaluation of the Family Empowerment Centers passed the evaluation portion of the contracting process. The RFP has been revised for clarification and is now available on this Web page. State legislation established the Family Empowerment Centers on Disability to provide parents of students with disabilities access to information, services, and support to ensure that disabled students receive a free, appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. Currently, 12 centers operate in California. The law requires the California Department of Education to contract with an outside entity to conduct an evaluation of the effectiveness of the services that the centers provide by analyzing information gathered during the study.
