Adams Central Public Schools achieves Marzano High Reliability Schools Level 2 certification

Adams Central Public Schools is pleased to announce the achievement of Level 2 certification in Marzano High Reliability Schools. Level 2 certification means Adams Central has established Effective Teaching in Every Classroom, which focuses on the responsibility of both school leaders and teachers in ensuring high-quality instruction.

“Our district staff has always been dedicated to growing great together,” said Shawn Scott, Adams Central superintendent. “This has been a great experience for us to be even more intentional about growing student success.”

The high reliability school program was created by Marzano Resources to help transform schools into organizations that take proactive steps to ensure student success. Using a research-based five-level hierarchy, along with leading and lagging indicators, educators learn to assess, monitor, and confirm the effectiveness of their schools.

This framework, based on 50 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become an HRS — where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond.

“As you move through the levels, it represents a complete transformation in how schools are run,” says CEO Robert J. Marzano.

Schools must collect data and validate their performance to climb each level of the hierarchy. Certification is determined by Marzano Resources analysts in cooperation with school data teams.

Using the HRS framework and indicators, schools can drive sustained, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement by synthesizing multiple complex initiatives into one harmonious system.
