CSDP Targeted Partnership Program Catalog — SY 2022-2023

How to Apply

Use this application form to register for one or more programs in the catalog. You can register as a single school or as a district team. If you have questions about a particular program, please reach out to the contact listed in the program description.

While any Massachusetts district is able to register for the programs in this catalog, priority will be given to districts identified as requiring assistance by the state's accountability system. Additional selection priorities or criteria are noted in each program's description.


The Department is offering several opportunities for districts to receive targeted support during the 2022-2023 school year. The opportunities listed below are organized around three categories, each of which is foundational to advancing educational equity across schools:

  • Sense of Belonging: Every student feels safe, welcomed and valued as an active member of the school community due to a safe and supportive learning environment.
  • Grade-Appropriate Instruction: Every student has access to culturally responsive, grade-appropriate instruction that helps them master grade-level standards and practices.
  • Strategic Planning and Coherence: School systems have clear priorities, leverage systems and structures in service of identified priorities, and continuously monitor and adjust strategies as needed.

Please note there is significant overlap between these priorities. All of the programs listed within each priority include elements of all three, and have been designed with an explicit focus on educational equity.

Which Program Is Right for Your District?

Prior to registering for a program, districts should consider:

Districts should considerSupport provided by DESE
  • Your priorities for next year
Attend one of CSDP's Spring Planning Workshops (below) for support.
  • Your team's specific needs and bandwidth
  • What partnerships and programs you already have in place
  • The content, duration, structure, and commitments of available programs
View program descriptions on each page or attend the Catalog Webinar to learn more about specific programs.

We recommend participating in one intensive program, but after a thoughtful planning process, districts may identify more than one that are well-positioned to support their priorities, including several "supplemental" programs in the catalog that are designed to support districts with strategic implementation of specific priorities. We also encourage districts to consider the partners and programs available outside of CSDP and DESE while planning and identifying the most aligned supports for the year.
