Remember that schools in Cohorts 1-4 may attend trainings on an as-needed basis. Please register ahead of time so that we can plan accordingly. This is a great way to stay on top of all things HRS.
NASOT Online Summer Academy
One of the things you'll notice on the schedule is an online NASOT Academy this summer. Schools in Cohorts 1-5 are welcome to utilize this training. The training will take place through Canvas.

2020-21 Certification Information
If you are interested in certifying in any HRS level during the fall of 2020, it is important to let one of us know. The best way to inform us about your interest is to complete and submit the certification application as soon as possible. The application for certification can be found here but also on our website at bit.ly/R9HRS.
We had originally requested this information by May 1, but due to the current situation, we are asking you to submit this as soon as you can so that we can prepare contracts with Marzano Resources. Please be aware that there may be some changes in the way certification takes place, and we will let you know as soon as we know more.
As you considering the possibility to pursue certification, please keep the following critical commitments in mind:
Level 1 - Safety procedures, protocols, and PLCs are alive and well (while the work of PLCs is never complete, PLCs should be organized and meeting regularly about those PLC topics before pursuing certification in this level).
Level 2- There is a school-wide model of instruction, teachers are setting goals and participating in instructional rounds.
Level 3- Your campus practices include a curriculum based and data-driven instruction, a vocabulary framework, and work on proficiency scales/TEKS breakdowns.
