High Reliability Schools

Please take the time to read through the information below and to complete the Parent Survey

HRS Introduction

At Franklin, we strive to continuously improve in all that we do. The District is involved in a new school improvement process called High Reliability Schools. As a district we are using the research-based framework of Robert Marzano. A key component to this framework is the feedback sought by all stakeholder groups: Staff, Students, and Parents through a survey.

There are five levels to HRS with our first focus on Level 1: Safe & Collaborative Culture. We would appreciate your feedback by completing the survey. The survey will be available in multiple ways: 1) link included in this bulletin, 2) e-mail sent out on Wednesday, February 7, or 3) drop into the IMC during Parent-Teachers to complete online, 4) computers available during the upcoming Activities (2/15), Orchestra (2/19) , and Band (3/1) concerts.

During the week of February 19 all students will complete the student survey during their exploratory class.
