Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning

clr heart

CLR is the practice of validating and affirming the home cultures and home languages of all of our students for the purposes of building upon those cultures to bridge students to success in the culture of academia and mainstream society.


We believe that all administrators, teachers, and staff need to meet the students where they are to help get them to where they need to be.

The CLR Framework

The CLR Leadership teams believe that the path to a more responsive classroom runs through four elements.  Teacher coaches provide professional development opportunities for administration and teachers to support an increased awareness, stronger learning partnerships, differentiated information processing, and supportive environments.


SRVUSD CLR Framework 2016


CLR Leadership Team


This team is a leadership team that meets monthly.  Our goal is to research and workshop solutions to the question, "How do we reduce and interrupt predictability about who fails and succeeds at SRVUSD?". 


Team members work to develop responsive professional development and act as coaches to administrators,  teachers, and students.
