Marzano Coming to AUSD for Elementary!

The AUSD Educational Services team is collaborating with Marzano Research and Tammy Hefflebower over the next three years to lead teachers in standards-based learning and grading.  


Year one:

  • Teacher groups will identify priority standards and develop proficiency scales in Mathematics and English Language Arts. 

Year two: 

  • Teachers will focus on collecting and curating assessment items and tasks aligned to priority standards. 

Year three:

  • Teachers will be devoted to implementation of standards-based grading.


Engagement through this process will help all educators in AUSD to focus on content that matters most for student achievement while ensuring that all students have equal access to high quality instruction.
