New Resources to Support NYSED’s Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework

November 12, 2021

To support districts and schools in raising awareness of the CR-S Framework, the NYS Education Department has released three optional Professional Development Toolkits that can be shared within schools and professional communities. The toolkits contain Power Point presentations and turnkey facilitation guides tailored to three audience types: a General Session, a Teacher Session, and an Administrative/District Leaders Session. The toolkits are customizable to address districts’, schools’, or communities’ unique needs. Also released are three culturally responsive-sustaining education articles written by fellow educators to share ideas and resources on implementing the CR-S Framework. 

If you have any questions on the new materials or on the CR-S Framework, please contact the Office of Curriculum and Instruction at
