Nocona Elementary School achieves Level 1 certification in Marzano High Reliability Schools April 16, 2019

Nocona Elementary School is pleased to announce the achievement of Level 1 certification in Marzano High Reliability Schools.

Level 1 certification means Nocona Elementary School has created a “Safe and Collaborative Culture,” which is the foundation for every level that follows. Without such a culture, student achievement will be compromised. Day-to-day school operations are addressed and evaluated in Level 1.

The high reliability school (HRS) program was created by Marzano Research 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.
