In Leading a High Reliability School, authors Robert J. Marzano, Philip B. Warrick, Cameron L. Rains, and Richard DuFour say the key lies in Professional Learning Communities at Work (PLC), a whole-school or whole-district effort in which teams collaborate in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and actions research to achieve better results for students. A high reliability school embraces this cultural transformation. In this book, K-12 administrators will learn how to transform their schools into high reliability schools, using five levels: (1) a safe, supportive, and collaborative culture; (2) effective teaching in every classroom; (3) a guaranteed and viable curriculum; (4) standards-referenced reporting; and (5) competency-based education. With the data-driven instruction and collaborative reaching strategies in this book, leaders will boost academic achievement schoolwide--back cover.
