Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

Teams of educators committed to working collaboratively to answer the four main questions regarding student learning:

1) What should students know or be able to do?
2) How is the knowing/doing measured?
3) What interventions are in place when students experience difficulty?
4) How do we enrich lessons for students who need it?
