Community School Partnership
As a lead Community School partner organization, our aim is to engage and empower members at every level of a school community. Replications partners with school communities to provide programs, services and coordination that nurture the whole child and drive student achievement.
• Develop and maintain positive school cultures and climates

Expanded Learning Time
We assist schools to develop comprehensive academic and enrichment ELT programs that are specifically designed to meet the needs of the students and school community.
Community Building and Rebranding
We believe strongly in engaging with the community to develop partnerships and share resources. We also have many years of experience with branding, marketing and recruitment in schools.
Your support helps us do more.
Based on our experience providing services to school leadership and instructional staff, Replications has developed the Essential Features of Schools (EFS) system for working with partner schools and districts. EFS is an integrated system of tools, practices, and professional development programs designed to promote the habits of mind that lead to the development of continuous improvement and Growth Mindset school cultures: cultures in which everyone holds the belief that they are able to increase talent, ability and even intelligence through curiosity, learning, and discipline.
• Standards-based 21st century thinking curriculum
• Quality instruction that is research-based and differentiated
• Sustainable leadership
To assist educators in developing 21st century thinking curriculum, Essential Features of Schools (EFS) system has programs that serve as model curricula and pedagogy for educators to implement and emulate. It also has programs that assist educators in increasing the impact of existing programs and curricula. All EFS programs are grounded in research on cognitive engagement. In particular, we draw from and align our programs to the work of Carol Dweck’s self-efficacy theory and Benjamin Bloom’s taxonomy for critical thinking and learning. Replications EFS programs apply the research of these two seminal thinkers so we both teach and model how to fully engage, scaffold, and differentiate learning experiences so all learners fully engage in standards-based 21st century curriculum.
Individually, our professional development offerings are designed to help participants improve their job performance and impact on student outcomes. Collectively, they form a system of complementary programs and practices that can lead to profound organizational change and continuous improvement.
