Improving Results for Students with Diverse Needs

The Blueprint for English Language Learners Success is a statewide framework of eight guiding principles for administrators, policy makers, and practitioners to prepare all Multilingual Learners for success beginning in prekindergarten to lay the foundation for college and career readiness. 

The mission of the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is to ensure that all New York State (NYS) students, including Multilingual Learners, attain the highest level of academic success and language proficiency. We strive to ensure that all students’ individual educational paths and socio-emotional needs are met in multiple languages leading them to college and career readiness. NYSED believes that all teachers are teachers of Multilingual Learners.


The Blueprint for Improved Results for Students with Disabilities is a statewide framework is intended to clarify expectations for administrators, policy makers and practitioners to improve instruction to prepare students with disabilities for success beginning in the preschool years to lay the foundation for post-secondary readiness and success. 

This Blueprint was developed in consultation with stakeholders and is consistent with the mission of NYSED to ensure that students with disabilities have the opportunities to benefit from high quality instruction, to reach the same standards as all students, and to leave school prepared to successfully transition to post-school learning, living and employment.
