Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)
Collaboration can play an important role in impacting student learning. The work of the collaborative team is focused on raising achievement and closing gaps, led by teachers, and coached and supported by the Instructional Facilitator (IF). The IF's role is to guide the work of teacher teams as they use data to identify students' academic needs, purposefully plan instruction, and share effective strategies from their own practice. As educators share best-practices and learn from one another, the whole group is enriched ("we" is smarter than "me"). Work products expected from teams are defined and communicated by the School Leadership Team.
