In order to enhance the focus of research and evidence based materials to be used with all students in Polk County Public Schools and to ensure that the products and professional learning provided by consultants is focused on district priority professional learning needs, all external providers of professional learning must complete the Instructional Program and Materials Application. This process is used to ensure that instructional materials and programs provided by external consultants and vendors are aligned with Florida Standards and the Strategic Plan of Polk County Public Schools. Please review the instructional vendor’s application process and complete all steps relating to your product. Your complete application will be reviewed by the P.U.R.E.(Purchasing and Utilizing Resources Effectively) Committee.

 

  • Please provide complete, concise, and relevant responses for each section as appropriate.
  • ONLY COMPLETED APPLICATIONS WILL BE REVIEWED FOR APPROVAL. Incomplete applications will result in delays or denial of eligibility to provide instructional materials, instructional resources, and/or professional learning services in the district.
  • Vendors are NOT permitted to contact school personnel prior to P.U.R.E. approval. Doing so could place the approval of the program in jeopardy. During district adoption process for Instructional Materials, Polk County is a CLOSED school district. If a supplemental instructional resource is approved, schools will contact you if they would like to purchase the product or materials.

 

Supplemental programs and materials are reviewed twice a year by the P.U.R.E. Curriculum Committee. Submissions completed by 4:00 p.m. EST, April 15th will be reviewed and decisions made in July. Second submission cycle will be implemented if necessary, with a completion deadline of 4:00 p.m. EST, October 1st and decisions made in January.
