Negotiate & Purchase
When determining whether to continue or scale up product use, refer to the pilot data. Districts can leverage pilot evidence to negotiate a tailored solution (e.g., partial purchase, second round of pilots with additional users, etc.) with product developers.
With open lines of communication, districts and product developers can reach mutually beneficial solutions.
