Snapshot of success from the field

Farmington Municipal Schools | Farmington, New Mexico

Before bringing the HRS framework to Farmington, former deputy superintendent Phil Valdez was hard at work with his leadership team and teachers, designing and implementing an instructional model that showed promise in improving school performance.

Then, they discovered Marzano Resources and HRS. After 120 staff members attended the HRS Summit, they returned with a deep understanding of the district’s shared commitment. This inspiration was what they needed to align their work districtwide and operationalize their vision for continuous improvement.

Before beginning this school improvement work, not one Farmington school achieved Adequate Yearly Progress. Now, all schools earn A, B, or C grades. Farmington continues to lead the state in student achievement for large school districts. “We are doing the right work, and we have a continuous improvement mindset,” Valdez shares.
