Algebra I, Geometry, & Algebra II RFP

Algebra 1 & 2 and Geometry RFP

The Hudson School District is accepting Requests For Proposals to acquire Algebra I, Geometry, and  Algebra II curricular resources.  

As part of our Curriculum Improvement Process, we have identified the need for a comprehensive Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II resource for middle and high school students.  The Hudson School District has one middle school with 1,100 students and one high school with 1,700 students.

Hudson School District Mission: We are dedicated to developing caring and contributing community members. We are collectively committed to providing a rigorous, student-centered environment to ensure equitable experiences for all students.

What is the projected timeline of the RFP, and what does it entail? This three-phase process runs as follows:  

  • Phase 1: Vendors submit one complete set of sample materials for Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, and a written summary of no more than two pages delineating their product’s alignment with the criteria listed below no later than March 11 . The sample materials should include all teacher and student resources, both hard copy and electronic. Complete and return this Vendor Submission Form no later than March 1, 2024, indicating your request to participate.
  • Phase 2: The district will conduct a preliminary review of the materials provided to determine finalists. If chosen as a finalist, Hudson School District will communicate your assigned presentation time slot on or around April 19, 2024, along with directions to the presentation meeting room.
  • Phase 3: Finalists will be invited to offer a 45-minute presentation describing the alignment of their product with our outlined needs.

The team will begin meetings in the spring of the 23-24 school year, with a decision before the end of May 2024.  We are projecting implementation in the fall of the 24-25 school year. 

The following criteria will be used to select what resource the District decides to use for this initiative, and vendors should come prepared to show how their product(s) meet these desired outcomes:                                                    


  • Standards Aligned: Supports the standards and learning targets (objectives) of the curricular offering in which the material is used. The resource illustrates vertical alignment of the algebra and geometry standards/courses. 
  • Developmental Appropriateness: Appropriate for the age, emotional, and social development and ability level of the students for whom the materials are selected.
  • Research-Based/Factual: Meets high standards of quality in factual content and presentation.
  • Student Materials: Engaging and user-friendly, with easy navigation to lessons and resources for students.  Includes printable and online formats with spiraled review practice.
  • Instructional Strategies: Allows for, encourages, and supports the use of multiple instructional strategies  (ie. collaborative work and math software). Applicable for block and 45 minute classes.


  • Strategic Plan Alignment: Supports the educational Vision, Values, and Mission of the District and the objectives of the curricular offering in which the materials will be used.
  • Professional Learning: Includes a well-developed professional learning plan to support teachers and administrators with successful implementation and continuous growth.  
  • Teacher Materials: Materials are user-friendly and arranged in a logical order. Teacher support resources include adult-level explanations and access to examples and additional resources. Materials include editable practice and instructional videos. 


  • Formative: High-quality formative assessments (e.g. tasks, open-ended questions, project-based, observational, etc) are provided for assessing student learning and informing instructional decision-making.
  • Summative: High-quality standards-based assessments (e.g., tasks, open-ended questions, project-based, observational, etc.) are provided to assess student learning and inform instructional decision-making for each topic. Includes rubrics to support determining proficiency.


  • Differentiation/Accessibility:  Materials reflect a variety of ways to differentiate instruction (reteach and enrichment) and model content to support all learners. Resource design and features facilitate readability for a broad group of users. The resource is developed with universal design principles and accessibility guidelines, including text-to-speech and Spanish materials. 
  • Diverse Perspectives: Presents a variety of factual points of view. 
  • Representation:  Provide windows (seeing others experiences), mirrors (seeing oneself) & doors (opportunity to immerse oneself into another’s lived experience). Illustrations portray people from a diverse range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. 

If your company is invited to the finalist phase, please be prepared to provide 25 copies of a written summary of service offerings and hardware specifications, including but not limited to the physical and virtual resources.  Vendors should come prepared to share purchase cost information. Each service should be separated out when providing pricing, so the district has the ability to red-line unwanted services.

Please be aware that this is a Request for Proposal and not a competitive bid.  The terms and conditions of this proposal are as follows:

  1. The District reserves the right to reject any or all proposals.
  2. The District may waive any irregularities or informalities and select what is most advantageous to the District.
  3. The District may render the proposal invalid due to unauthorized modifications of specification forms or terms.
