These Blueprints are set up for leaders to put their learning into practice. By using these guides with the support of their Portico coach, facilitator, and cohort group, leaders can make sure they have the essential elements in place to create strong and healthy student-centered communities and build the infrastructure needed to put social-emotional and critical-thinking skills on par with academic skills. This leads to environments where students, staff, and families share a purpose and identity so every student is engaged in learning, equipped for their future, and feels a sense of belonging.
