Personal Mastery at Kenowa Hills 

Access our most recent Personal Mastery e-Newsletter here.

We began our journey in 2012 with a vision to create a competency-based system where learning is the constant and time is the variable.

Working with Reinventing Schools and Marzano, leaders in educational research, we found a highly effective personal mastery model for our district. We visited other districts implementing personal mastery. Our visits were followed by many discussions and a stakeholder decision to move forward with our personal mastery vision. Next steps entailed training and coaching from the Reinventing Schools staff. We chose the Marzano Reinventing Schools Model because of its clear vision and support to implement a competency-based model of education.
