The Design Team will convene monthly on the first Thursday, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., beginning in October 2019 through June 2020.
Design Team Application
Applicants may consist of, but are not limited to, school staff, paraprofessionals, teachers, specialists, leaders, parents, partners and community members. The Culturally Responsive Practices Framework will support the state, school districts, and schools in pursuing and sustaining the implementation of culturally responsive practices for schools. The Framework will outline consistent competencies for teachers, leaders, and school communities to identify and improve their respective levels of cultural responsiveness and practice.
The Design Team application will help the selection team choose a diverse group to help develop, design, and roll-out the Culturally Responsive Practices Framework.
