2021 Updates for Illinois & Chicago Public Schools
Chicago Public Schools
CPS opened an RFQ for "Educational Technology Products", which was due May 3, 2021. This RFQ was designed to approve a pool of pre-qualified vendors. FUSE submitted a response to this RFQ and has been recommended for adoption by CPS. We are working with CPS on the legal contracting process, which is lengthy. Our understanding as of 9/1/2021 is that our contract will include a provision for use of the various third party websites utilized in FUSE that require logins. We will continue to update this page as we receive more information from CPS.
As of June 2021, FUSE moved to a standard Data Privacy Agreement for partner schools. Because we are located in IL, our default data agreement is the IL-NDPA-V1.0a.
Districts that wish to sign on to this agreement may do so by completing Exhibit E and submitting it to Northwestern for signature. The agreement is linked here. As of 9/1/2021, 9 districts in IL have signed on to the IL-NDPA, with additional districts in process.
For additional information, please email the FUSE Program Director, at email@example.com.
3rd Party Websites which require a student sign-in
If your district does not allow students to log in to a particular site, we encourage you to consider a shared account, where the facilitator creates a general account that students can use to log in and access the tool. For more information, please visit our shared accounts article.
