RFP #2
Topic: Prevention – Opioid Addiction

Program Evaluation Request for Proposal

Needs Assessment and Recommendations for Planning


The Merryville Public School System (MPSS) is soliciting proposals for a systematic evaluation of whether there is a need to offer preventive programs in their elementary grades to address opioid addiction.

Community health officials have reported increased opioid use and dependence among adults, including those who are parents of younger school-age children. Last year, the county health department began to provide informational posters and brochures for use in the district’s high school (grades 7–12, 160 students). Brochures also were made available to the parents of the high school students and through local businesses and religious organizations. However, it is unknown whether this method has been effective in general or among families with younger school-age children. To date, no direct discussions or education and prevention activities have been planned or developed for use within the district’s elementary school (K–6, 214 students).

Purpose of Evaluation

(1) Needs assessment: Before a prevention activity can be considered and planned, it is necessary to identify whether key stakeholders believe there is a need to offer activities to these younger students to address opioid addiction. Are these children actually confronted with opioid use/addiction within their homes? What are the views of school administrators, teachers, counselors, and other school personnel? Parents? Other key stakeholders in the community? What are their recommendations?
(2) Justification of cost: Is the need sufficient to justify the cost of developing such a program, training staff, and possible changes in school curriculum, policies, and other related aspects of implementation?
(3) Recommendations for planning: If there are identified needs, what models and goals do other school prevention programs like this address?1 Would they match this school’s needs, etc.? How are these kinds of programs implemented? What are steps to build into planning (e.g., who does what, training, staffing, other resources to implement)? What are the outcomes of similar programs and their impacts on communities? Are these feasible for this community?

Conditions of Contract

Budget for contractual evaluation and consultation set at maximum of $25,000. Report must be delivered no later than 6 months from the date of initiation.
