District Vision

District 7 empowers, engages and inspires students, leaders, staff and all community members in a safe and inclusive learning environment.

 

District Goals

 

Improve Outcomes for Students 

- By June 2021, District 7 will increase the percentage of ENLs and SWDs  who perform at Levels 2-4 by 15%  in service of reducing the gap in achievement between this subgroup and their general education peers by 5% through increasedin person and remoteinstructional coherence, rigorous programs and an effective intervention program eliminating the use of reteaching as the predominant strategy to improve student performance without evidence of impact. 


Strengthen Social-Emotional Learning and Culturally Responsive School Environments
 

- By June 2021, District 7 will engage our families using research-based programs and approaches to build inclusive in-person and remote school culture and CRSE environments resulting in a 5% decrease in chronic absenteeism, eliminating disparities in attendance rates for students with disabilities with the goal of eliminating/reducing the belief that the traditional ways of monitoring chronic absenteeism (407→phone call→ ACS) are effective in bridging the gap between schools and families 


Develop Leaders
 

-By June 2021, District 7 will design and orchestrate a robust system of structured remote intervisitations in our District 7 community and beyond the District to cultivate and share best online and in-person practices which promote instructional excellence and accelerate student achievement resulting in 10% decrease in Level 1 student performance in Math and ELA while decreasing the achievement gap between SWD/ELL students and their General Education Non-ELL peers. 


Mathematics
 

- By June 2021, District 7 schools will focus on providing students who performed a Level 1 in math with access to authentic, rich and diverse mathematical tasks and mathematical remote and in person experiences that promote conceptual understanding through student discussion, collaboration, and connection making reducing the belief that students of color who score in the lowest proficiency level require static teaching practices low in engagement in order to improve their proficiency which will result in a decrease in the percentage of students performing at level 1 in math by at least 5% as well as a decrease in the opportunity gap between SWDs/ELLs and their general education non-ELL peers by 5%

  • MASA: RAPID RESPONSE IN ACTION

    Good Afternoon,

     
    I hope everyone is safe and well.
     
    My name is Elida Almaraz, I am the community educator at Masa. In the past couple of months Masa has been operating in "rapid response" mode which means we have shifted focus to assist members in our community with food, health, housing and legal resources. 
     
    We are currently managing 2 food programs:
    1.  Food Pantry- Every week we give out food boxes that are brought to us by GrowNYC- these boxes contain a variety of fruit and veggies, plus rice/pasta and beans. We try to be as fair as possible and distribute to members 3-4 times in a month and by appointment to ensure we are minimizing the amount of people in our office space. 
    2. Tacombi hot meal program- with this program clients get to pick up prepared meals that are supplied by the restaurant Tacombi. This also happens on a weekly basis by appointment.
     
    If any of your members are interested in our Food pantry or hot meal program please let us know. For the pantry list we ask that you forward any referrals by Thursday 10/1 as we will start to officialize a list by the end of this week.
     
    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 
     
    Best,
    Elida

  • Childcare Seats for 3K-8th Grade

    Link to Form

    Please complete this survey to apply for the Learning Bridges program, which will provide child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade this fall for days when they are not in school buildings.

    As the Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and sites will operate on a blended learning model. This will include some in-person services for a portion of the week and reduced class sizes in accordance with social distancing guidance.

    As placements are available, families will be contacted by DOE.

    Please note: programs will become available on a rolling basis through the start of school.

    This is a great time to honor and give recognition to all the contributions our Latinx/Hispanic Americans offer.  In addition to paying tribute to this community, we also want to take this time to acknowledge the challenges and hardship that many in the Hispanic/Latinx community face.  Please take some time to review the attached EAP takeaway and share with staff.
