FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School achieves Level 1 certification in
Marzano High Reliability Schools
New York, NY, [December 5, 2024] – Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School is pleased to announce the achievement of Level 1 certification in Marzano High Reliability
Schools. Level 1 certification means Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School has created a “Safe, Supportive, 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.
“I am excited to announce that Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School has attained Level 1 certification in Marzano High Reliability Schools”, says CEO & Founder, Christina Reyes. “As the first school in NYC to attain this certification we are proud of the work our staff, students and families have done to earn this milestone. It represents more than just a certification; it signifies our commitment to fostering a Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture for our staff and students.”
The High Reliability School (HRS) 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.
