RI-ISTE Purchasing Consortia Opportunities

The Vita-Learn Executive Director and Board of Directors review each partner. During that review, we determine if the partner’s solutions appear to be of value to our members. Inclusion as a partner in the Vita-Learn Purchasing Consortia should not be considered a promotion or recommendation of that partner or their solutions. Vita-Learn’s primary goal is to aid member institutions gain better pricing as well as to help broaden the number of options in consideration for use in member institutions.

  • For tool-based solutions, we primarily focus on whether or not the tool’s functionality and purpose appears to have classroom or school/district value, but we do not complete a rigorous testing and evaluation of the tools itself. 
  • For solutions that include content, we primarily focus on whether or not the content appears to be specific to serving the needs of K12 schools, but we do not complete a rigorous evaluation to determine alignment with state learning standards or quality of content.
  • Partners are required to agree to sign the Vermont Student Data Privacy Agreement (https://sdpc.a4l.org/view_alliance.php?state=VT). It is the member institution’s responsibility to execute this agreement or to append an Exhibit E to an already executed agreement.

While we firmly believe that our partners offer quality solutions and content, Vita-Learn expects that individual member institutions will complete their own evaluations before making purchasing decisions.

As part of our negotiations with Partners, Vita-Learn has been able to secure permission to extend its pricing agreements with certain vendors to also include schools in the state of Rhode Island. In some instances, this means that purchases made through the consortia by Rhode Island schools are aggregated with Vermont schools (and often New Hampshire and Maine too) in order to create greater volume and therefore better pricing. Pricing and purchasing instructions vary from partner to partner. Please see each partner’s page (click any icon below) to view more detailed information. If you have questions, you may direct them to Jeff Mao, director@vita-learn.org.
