The ND Department of Public Instruction
Is Looking for Educational Experts
April 16, 2010
The ND Department of Public Instruction has a new initiative entitled, The North Dakota Moving to Improve Learning for Everyone (NDMILE). It is a process to aid North Dakota school districts to increase student achievement and learning. NDMILE is a web-based system for schools to use to inform, coach, sustain, track and report instructional improvement activities. This process will guide school teams through a continuous cycle of assessment, planning and monitoring school progress through the use of research-based indicators. There are currently 38 North Dakota schools in the first cohort group that will use this process.
In an effort to make this initiative successful, the Department of Public Instruction is looking for educators with a flexible schedule who have a desire to work a limited number of hours with NDMILE schools in a support capacity.
To be considered, individuals must have expertise in a variety of program improvement and school reform areas. Additionally, individuals must have excellent leadership skills in order to provide individualized assistance and guidance to schools. Individuals who would like to learn more about this endeavor are welcome to submit a completed Informal Request for Proposal (IRFP) by April 29, 2010. The IRFP is posted on the State Procurement website at
