File Attachment:
Summary : Per an RFP conducted in the summer of 2021 with 11 respondents, the District requested bids for an Internet Content Filter solution to replace our current application. Proof of concept testing was done throughout the school year with four respondents. The recommended award is to ContentKeeper Technologies for their ContentKeeper CK Web Filtering and Security Platform license for Education solution due to best demonstrated solution for the District.

This software and hardware purchase will ensure the safety and engagement of District students across every device, browser, and platform while empowering staff with unmatched filtering, classroom management, and control from the Cloud. In addition, this purchase includes classroom management capabilities that will allow teachers and students to be more effective with their technology utilization.

Approval for ContentKeeper CK Web Filtering and Security Platform license for a three (3) year term with two (2) 12-month optional renewals for a total value of $677,650.00 for the three (3) year term with annual payments of $225,883.33. District has the option to renew or cancel the contract at the end of the initial term.

Purchasing this using a longer term allows the District the ability lock license and support pricing for five (5) years.
