  • Marzano Resources is in frequent contact with the staff at event venues to get updates about new or updated COVID-19 guidance from local and state officials related to events and public health. We have proactively taken steps to promote the health and safety of our attendees, associates, and staff.

Imagine if every school focused on five key components of education and gave staff the time to fully master them. The result would be sustainable school improvement and high levels of learning for all.

Trusted by educators around the world, the Marzano High Reliability Schools (HRS) framework serves as a long-term strategic planning guide for schools and districts. Rather than constantly seeking new initiatives, the framework encourages educators to concentrate their efforts on five key areas of operation:

  1. Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture
  2. Effective Teaching in Every Classroom
  3. Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
  4. Standards-Referenced Reporting
  5. Competency-Based Education

Join us at the High Reliability Schools Summit to learn how this powerful framework can help address your school or district’s unique needs and goals. With the support and guidance of our acclaimed HRS experts, you and your team will dive deep into the five levels of high reliability schooling, engage in strategic planning, and leave fully prepared to create the conditions for success across your school community.

  • Learn how the HRS framework serves as a school leadership model that offers a clear, concise focus on research-based practices that increase student achievement.
  • Discover how establishing a common model of instructional practice can improve teaching and learning in every classroom.
  • Explore how the professional learning communities (PLC) concept is embedded into the HRS framework and serves as a critical vehicle to drive learning.
  • Acquire a process for establishing a guaranteed and viable curriculum districtwide to ensure all students learn.
  • Understand how to use quick data to monitor and sustain successful practices within schools.
  • Examine key aspects of standards-based grading, such as developing proficiency scales and creating high-quality classroom assessments.
  • Investigate the concept of competency-based education and how it can be developed within a school.

“The conference as a whole was one of the best conferences I have attended. Each session had many different components which helped me reflect on where our district currently is and where we need to go. Also, each session provided explicit examples of solutions you could implement in the upcoming school year.”

Jackie Nielsen, district office, Beatrice Public Schools, Nebraska
