Framework for Great Schools
The Framework for Great Schools is a fundamental change to the way the Department of Education will partner with our schools.
The Framework for Great Schools will –
>Allow the district to develop a holistic, research-based approach to school support and accountability that recognizes and celebrates what schools do every day. Our approach will honor the fact that students are more than just a test score.
> Provide tailored support to schools and foster professional learning communities.
>Hold schools and the school system accountable for the shared goal of building capacity to drive student achievement.
> Replace the spirit of competition with one of collaboration and establish a common language for improvement.
>Bring together the strengths of schools and their communities to support students throughout the school day and beyond.
>Advance educational attainment by preparing every New York City public school graduate to compete in the 21st -century workplace.
