School Level Indicators

The sixteen (16) School Level Indicators (SLIs) represent how your school will be guided and measured. The SLIs are a precise scope and sequence of research-supported components which lead to a school becoming a high-reliability organization. A Marzano Academies Site Implementation Specialist assigned to your campus will guide your campus through mastery of each SLI using performance scales created by Dr. Marzano and customized to fit each sites vision, resources, and needs. Successful completion (determined by the Marzano Academies team) of the 16 SLIs leads to certification as a Marzano Academy.  The 16 SLIs are:
