What is HRS?
The Marzano Research Group has developed the High Reliability Schools™ framework to identify best practices to implement in schools to improve student achievement. The framework organizes existing findings (research) on a wide variety of issues such as teacher and school leader development, instructional strategies, assessment and reporting, and more within one model. It identifies and explains five levels of performance that define a high reliability school (Marzano Research Group, website).
The five levels of performance are:
Level 1 - Safe and Collaborative Culture
Level 2 - Effective Teaching in Every Classroom
Level 3 - Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
Level 4 - Standards-Referenced Reporting
Level 5 - Competency-Based Education
During the 2018-2019 school year, Rebound School of Opportunity will work to attain Level 1 certification. In the Fall we will collect survey data from students and parents in order to identify our areas of strength as well as areas of need. We will address the areas of need by making changes to our current practices and implement additional practices as needed. We will gather survey data once again in the Spring so that we can measure the growth we have made in our areas of need.
