Discussion
On July 23, 2013 the School Board approved the termination of the Learning Management Systems Agreement with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company (HMH).  In 2011, HMH was the top-ranked firm resulting from Invitation to Negotiate #12001/JO.  Over the past several months, staff has thoroughly evaluated other software solutions that provide teacher evaluation and professional development components and has determined that Truenorthlogic’s solution meets the functionality required by Brevard Public Schools.  Truenorthlogic is being utilized successfully by seven (7) Florida school districts.  In addition, Truenorthlogic was the second-ranked solution resulting from the Invitation to Negotiate #12001/JO, Learning Management System solicitation that was issued in 2011.   The attached five (5) year agreement provides implementation, website development, website hosting, application hosting, maintenance services, and license fees.  The total cost of this agreement for the five (5) year term is $998,750.00 and will be funded by the Race To The Top grant.  This agreement has been reviewed by the School Board Attorney.
 
CONTRACT TERM: The agreement term shall be from September 1, 2013 through August 30, 2018
