Culturally Responsive Instruction

Vision: Build a district culture centered on a shared understanding of culturally responsive instruction, in order to meet the instructional needs of every learner, which aligns with the SPPS district's existing equity work. 

Mission: Create learning environments where all students make connections to what they are learning and teachers meet the learning needs of students, contributing to successful academic outcomes. We will: 

  • Prioritize and integrate culturally responsive practices in all staff professional development.

  • Build leadership capacity to create a ripple effect that impacts staff mindset and practice and student learning

  • Provide resources for teachers to implement culturally responsive instruction into their teaching and measurement tools for instructional leaders to ensure accountability. 

  • Provide resources for educators to support culturally responsive practices. 

  • Holistically integrate all Saint Paul Public Schools programs under Culturally Responsive Instruction.
