Your school can still be Recognized for the 2021-22 School Year!

While we aren't in the classroom with you, we know that ongoing challenges continue as you work tirelessly under very difficult circumstances.

For the 2021-22 school year Recognition criteria, we ask only that you take the TFI and complete a simple recognition application.

We plan to go back to our traditional recognition process in the 2022-23 school year. The 2022-23 process will include the invaluable feedback many of you have provided.


There are 2 Recognition criteria for the 2021-22 school year. Both were due online by April 29, 2022, but late submissions are accepted. (read the FAQ for info on late submissions)

  1. Fill out an online Recognition application (, so we can be updated on your Coaching staff. The application is brief (estimated time: 4 minutes), only collecting the basics, to respect your time and energy.

Recognition Technical Assistance

In light of the challenging year, we would like to pivot our staff time usually used to review Recognition Application, to offer free technical assistance to help you plan for the 2022-23 school year. During May and June, we will be offering individualized TA, at no cost, to any school who has completed the Recognition criteria. These TA sessions will focus on TFI Components that the school team has identified as an area of need.
