A brief history of Replications, Inc.
Replications is a nonprofit school support organization that was founded in 1998 with the mission to facilitate the replication of successful public schools thereby significantly increasing the impact of their proven methods on children, families and school systems. Our vision is that every child, regardless of race or socioeconomic status, has an opportunity to attend a high performing, dynamic and intellectually rigorous public school.
When we began, Replications accomplished its mission by providing professional development and partnership support to school and school district personnel that led to the creation of small, excellent schools based on distinctive school models with a record of success.
Over our 22 years, we supported the opening of 33 schools and partnered with numerous more, providing operational, professional development, youth development, and community school support.
Our professional development and partnership model has helped create several highly successful schools, including The Brooklyn Latin School, which in 2013 was ranked by US News and World Report as number 21 nationally, and Longwood Preparatory Academy, one of only two schools in New York State to achieve all eleven of its Receivership benchmarks two years in a row during the 2016/17 and 2017/18 school years.
Over the last five years, Replications has partnered with the NYC DOE as a lead Community-Based Organization (CBO) to implement the Community School Model in a total of five schools.
We implement the Community School model using Replications Essential Features of Schools (EFS) framework.
EFS consists of direct services for students and families, professional development, and specific, proprietary frameworks and practices that promote school cultures characterized by collaboration, trust, and equity.
