Here you will find detailed guidance in Spanish on developing a proficiency-based system of education—a system that will prepare all students for success in the colleges, careers, and communities of the 21st century. Our model is focused on prioritizing and assessing the most important knowledge and skills, while also balancing high academic expectations with the need for flexibility, responsiveness, and creativity in the classroom.
At the Great Schools Partnership, we strive to keep our guidance concise and practical, focusing only on the most essential policies, processes, and practices. In addition, we see our model as an iterative process, and we intend to revise, improve, and expand our resources over time.
Please note: This section will continue to grow as the Great Schools Partnership works to translate additional resources.
