High Reliability Schools

In partnership with Marzano Resources, we guide local districts in becoming High Reliability Schools. To support this rigorous process, we offer:

  • Surveys and data coaching to identify indicators of success

  • Strategic planning and monitoring of progress

  • Coaching and leadership development

Verndale Public Schools

Verndale Public Schools is a demonstration site for Dr. Robert Marzano's High Reliability Schools framework. The HRS framework shows how best practices work together, and provides indicators to empower districts and schools to measure progress on attaining five increasing levels of reliability.


At Walker-Hackensack-Akeley, a High Reliability Schools demonstration site, following HRS best practices is all about doing what is best for the students. Following the HRS framework helps district leaders, teachers, and staff to best work together and effectively measure student, school, and district progress.
