NCLR Core Qualities for Successful Schools

Research Report

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Core Qualities (CQs) for Successful Schools exemplify best practices for schools serving Latino students and their families. The CQs focus on eight areas: high expectations and high supports; collaborative leadership; partnerships with institutions of higher education; cultural competence; bilingualismbiliteracy; sustained meaningful relationships; family engagement and community collaboration; and continuous performance-based assessment. Adherence to the CQs ensures that schools are providing the best instruction for Latino children while taking advantage of the strengths these children and their families bring to school.
