Replications Statement on
Replications stands against all forms of racial injustice, white supremacy, and police brutality. Our Replications family is heartbroken by the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and so many other citizens of color in our recent history alone.
For more than 20 years, Replications has strove to bring equity through education to students and families in under-resourced communities in New York City. Our work as a Community School provider has shown us firsthand the horrible effects of systemic racism.
In the wake of the most recent acts of violence against people of color, Replications is committed to partnering with our schools and communities to combat racial injustice, white supremacy, and police brutality. We will do this through education, activism and the intentional redistribution of resources. Replications will be a part of the change that allows people in communities of color throughout New York City to have the same opportunities as anyone else. We invite and encourage all of our partners to join us in this urgent work.
What Makes a Replications School?
Whole School Support
Whole school support is our solution to the instability in high-needs schools. Operating as a hybrid between a management consulting firm and a local superintendency, we provide a comprehensive, coherent approach to school improvement using our Essential Features of Schools (EFS) support model.
In The Fifth Discipline, Peter Senge describes essential characteristics that great learning organizations share. Our Seed Programs—enrichment programs aimed at improving students’ academic and social skills and modeling exemplary teaching—catalyze the development of these characteristics at the grassroots level.
