Just as constructing a well-designed school building requires a blueprint, so does designing an effective and equitable learning program that addresses the needs of the whole child. Success occurs through a cycle of strong planning, action,and continuous monitoring.
This blueprint — designed with input from in-person and remote educators, leaders, researchers, professional learning providers, and technical assistance providers — strives to detail the indicators of learning programs that successfully integrate equity, well-being, and academics.
