Cultural Proficiency

  • Our Cultural Proficiency Work 

    Culturally and Linguistically Sustaining Practices (CLSP) draw upon, infuse and evoke students’ existing schema, experiences, funds of knowledge, and perspectives to optimally facilitate learning. C.L.S.P. also intentionally seek racial and cultural equity and pluralism in order to deliberately tailor district-wide norms, policies and practices to affirm the identities of and expand opportunities for historically marginalized students. C.L.S.P. heavily relies upon the scholarship and research of its preceding models, namely culturally relevant, culturally responsive and culturally sustaining pedagogies (Gay, 2010; Ladson-Billings, 1995; Paris, 2012). — Dr. Colin Rose & Hayden Frederick-Clarke
