Faubion Middle School is proud to announce that we have earned our High Reliability School Level 2 Certification. The HRS 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. The HRS framework does not add any new initiatives or replace many of the effective practices that already make Faubion a great school. Instead, this framework shows how best practices work together and provides indicators to empower districts and schools to measure their progress on attaining five increasing levels of reliability. There are five levels of HRS Certification:
Level 1 – Safe and Collaborative Culture
Level 2 – Effective Teaching in Every Classroom
Level 3 – Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
Level 4 – Standards-Referenced Reporting
Level 5 – Competency-Based Education
Using the framework and indicators, districts and schools can drive permanent, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement by synthesizing multiple complex initiatives into one harmonious system.
