An RFP went out yesterday from the Commonwealth of Virginia for funded pilots of CanDo (note to self: update CanDo web presence), which is a component of SchoolTool that tracks student competencies:
Local school divisions, regional technical centers and academies are invited to participate in a pilot project that will test the functionality and capabilities of the “CanDo” electronic student competency recordkeeping system for career and technical education courses. This project will be funded and administered by the Office of Career and Technical Education, Virginia Department of Education (VDOE).
There will be one pilot site per superintendent’s region. The Office of Career and Technical Education will award eight grants of $5,000.
This is a big step for both projects.
