Signature Strategies:  

  • Collaborate with families in authentic ways (e.g. Parent Advisories, Family Academies, Family Nights, translated materials, videos in multiple languages, home visits) across languages and cultures to integrate family funds of knowledge into school systems and help families understand available services, advocate for their scholar's needs, and support their scholar's learning.

  • Implement structures (e.g. effective Success Criteria) in every classroom, to support consistent use of data by our student-scholars to assess their own learning, determine learning goals, and monitor progress over time.
