Our top-rated Marzano High Reliability Schools Summit delivered virtually to you

Dr. Robert J. Marzano’s vision for K–12 education is simple: the vast majority of schools can be highly effective in promoting student learning. To show how, he created the Marzano High Reliability Schools™ (HRS) framework. This framework, based on 40 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become a high reliability school—where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond. This Portable Event Package gives you the knowledge and tools to implement this powerful framework in your school or district.

With this virtual event experience, you’ll receive 30-day access to:

  • Three new, 2020 keynotes from leading HRS experts
  • 14 expert-led breakout sessions
  • One recorded Q&A session with Dr. Marzano covering essential questions from practitioners like you

At the end of your 30-day virtual event, you will have access to one virtual team time led by one of our HRS experts, who can clarify your questions and help guide your possible next steps. Choose your ideal virtual team time from a menu of available times.

With this Portable Event Package, you’ll also receive:

  • A copy of our best-selling title, Professional Learning Communities at Work® and High Reliability Schools: Cultures of Continuous Learning
  • A program guide book
  • Digital copies of all breakout session handouts

For those just beginning to explore the concept of High Reliability Schools, this Portable Event Package is an excellent way to build your foundational knowledge. For those who are deepening and sustaining the work, this package is the ideal opportunity to revisit your mission, dive into new content, and get answers to your most pressing questions.
