2021 Awardees Reflect on the NBRS Application Process
The process provided a wonderful platform for significant reflection and analysis of our practices and culture.
We are appreciative of those who have invested the time and energy to think through and design a process that encourages school leaders to reflect upon the crucial areas of school culture, student services, professional development, and curriculum and instruction. The process was enlightening and helped us to identify areas we want to focus on for the 2021-2022 school year.
I think the process was clear and easy to pace. The questions are intense, but they should be! Anything that is this “high stakes” can be intimidating, but I just had to remember to take some deep breaths and work through the process.
As the primary person compiling information and writing the application, I felt informed and empowered throughout.
I really liked the timely focus on ways that we have shifted during the pandemic and the focus on culturally relevant teaching – meeting the needs of all learners. I was very impressed and am appreciative of the thoughtful questions.
I felt the application process was clear, and I appreciated the support materials that were provided because they helped my team to anticipate what was expected, how long the application would take to complete, and what our focus should be.
