The HRS Leader
Region 9 High Reliability Schools-February 2019
Our Tips, Tricks and Ideas:
1. Be organized. Organize your lagging indicators by leading indicators to make it easy on your certifier to understand what they are seeing. Consider an introduction page for each leading indicator to give you a place to organize both your thoughts and the evidence.
2. Use survey data. Remember that anything that received 4s or 5s on the survey are considered strong; however, you still need to include lagging indicators to demonstrate that strength. For anything receiving a 3 or below, be prepared to address how you approached and strengthened these areas. Include lagging indicators to show improvement as well as the implementation of your action plan for that area.
3. Quality over quantity. Include copies of documents, pictures or data sets that help the certifier understand what your campus does well. However, a few key pieces of evidence is better than throwing everything in one place.
4. Tell your story. Think of this as a chance to brag on what your campus does well. Be creative and sincere.
Below you will find a Certification Protocol that outlines the process as well as a copy of the Certification Application that must be returned to your R9 support staff before certification will be scheduled.
