Memo Text

Interested in seeking the High Reliability School certification in Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3? The Office of Education Renewal Zones are offering opportunities to support schools and teachers in evidence-based practices to impact student achievement. The Marzano High Reliability Schools framework serves as a long-term strategic planning guide for schools and districts. 

June 21, 2022 - Level 1 of the HRS framework addresses the factors considered foundational to the well-being of a school. The most crucial of Level 1 is to build a safe, supportive, and collaborative school culture by operating as a professional learning community (PLC). Register at ESC Works (Session #477150). Tuesday, June 21, 2022 - Virtual

Dr. Mario Acosta, Marzano Associate, will lead practices to:

  • Understand the connection between PLCs and High-Reliability Schools.

  • Reflect on the qualities of effective school leaders.

  • Explore the eight leading indicators for a safe, supportive, and collaborative culture.

  • Learn how to use data to respond to the needs of your school community.

June 22, 2022 - Level 2 - High-quality instructions are the most effective tool educators have at their disposal to positively affect student learning. Learn how to develop and maintain effective instruction in every classroom by building a shared language of instruction and using this common language to raise the level of pedagogical skill both individually and collectively. Register at ESC Works (Session #477155). Wednesday, June 22, 2022 - Virtual

June 30, 2022 - Level 2 and 3 - Dr. Shelley Gies, Marzano Associate, will support effective instruction in the classroom through feedback, content, and context to build a roadmap for K-12 teachers in lesson and unit planning.
