Our 2021-2022 Instructional Principles Reflection Tool

The Community Reflection is organized by the four priority areas outlined in our Collective Commitment to Accelerating Learning: Instructional Principles for Schools, which correspond with the four principles of the NYSED Culturally Responsive- Sustaining Education Framework:

1. Welcoming and Affirming Environment

2. High Expectations and Rigorous Instruction

3. Inclusive Curriculum and Assessment

4. Ongoing Professional Learning and Support

School leaders should include a wide range of stakeholder perspectives—including but not limited to students, families, teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, support staff, and external partners—to engage with this tool. Stakeholders can use the sample practices below to reflect on the current state of the school community (considering a pre-and post-pandemic context), noting both areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
