Guidance and resources for schools, staff, and families including manuals pertaining to  tests administration. Guidelines, procedures, and accommodations for special needs populations and students with disabilities are outlined, as well.

Presented by the New York City Department of Education, these resources have just been released. Families and caregivers are well served by accessing this information. All materials should be linguistically appropriate to primary and native language spoken at home.

Mindful of diversity, caregivers will be more empowered as advocates for their children at school. Ensure distribution and, if necessary[but highly advisable], provide information sessions for parents to become more knowledgeable of their rights,  and fully understand this important process of administering tests to their children.

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnership between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I also tell truths rarely explored. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
