Our Proposal Process
Tailored to meet the expressed needs of your school district.
What We Do
Since it’s founding in 1983, Questeq has been in the business of putting technology to work in K-12. Our suite of services, which we refer to holistically as Educational Technology Management, or ETM, are built around a model that centers on Questeq assuming responsibility for day-to-day management of a school district’s technology and collaborating with district leadership to build a technology support team specifically tailored to the district’s needs and technology goals.
Our Proposal Development Process
Our approach to understanding a school district’s needs and determining the right recommendations is drawn from decades of experience and stays the same whether we’re working with a suburban district with 6,000+ students or a rural district with less than 2,000.
1. Assessment of Requirements
In order to appropriately understand and analyze a district’s unique needs, challenges and current capabilities, we collect a variety of data points on the district and its technology. We also engage in discussions with key district stakeholders to get their perspectives and help inform our analysis.
2. Solution Design
We know that no two school districts are exactly alike or have the exact same needs and challenges, so no two ETM proposals are exactly alike. Our team of experts will develop a recommendation that not only addresses technology needs, but also accounts for unique staffing and resource requirements.
3. Proposal Delivery & Validation
All sales engagements ultimately culminate in the presentation of our proposal to the School Board, but prior to that taking place, we’ll provide a review with the Superintendent and/or other senior stakeholders at the district’s discretion. When presenting to School Boards, we typically provide an initial review of our assessment and recommendations in Executive Session to allow for candid discussion, particularly when personnel matters may be involved.
Additionally, we assume that no proposal will strike all the right chords on first pass, so this approach allows opportunities for discussions and refinement prior to consideration in a public Voting Session.
