Hackett Elementary School Receives Highly Effective Schools Accreditation

Hackett Elementary School announced today that it  has earned Highly Effective Schools Accreditation from Solution Tree. This accreditation  is a significant achievement that reflects Hackett Elementary School’s commitment to  reaching and maintaining the highest levels of educational quality. Hackett Elementary  School earned this accreditation by maintaining and growing identified areas having the  biggest impact on student learning and growth. These areas are directly aligned to the  Professional Learning Communities at Work® (PLC) process and the High Reliability  Schools™ (HRS) framework.  

PLCs are schools and districts that recognize the key to improved learning for students  is ongoing, job-embedded professional learning for educators. The 3 Big Ideas of the  PLC at Work process call upon educators to: (1) focus on learning, (2) build a  collaborative culture, and (3) create a results orientation. The complementary HRS  framework serves as a long-term strategic planning tool that guides school  improvement in five key areas:  

1. Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture 

2. Effective Teaching in Every Classroom 

3. Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum 

4. Standards-Referenced Reporting 

5. Competency-Based Education 

Cameron L. Rains, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for Solution Tree and co-author of  Professional Learning Communities at Work® and High Reliability Schools™: Cultures of  Continuous Learning, explained, “In order to receive Highly Effective Schools Accreditation, schools must put a laser-like focus on the things that really matter and make a difference for  students. We commend Hackett Elementary School for achieving this designation and for going  the extra mile for the learners they serve.”
