Professional Learning Communities

"The artificial distinction that has long existed between teacher 'work time' (that is, time spent in the classroom) and teacher 'learning time' (that is, days set aside annually for 'institutes') will be replaced by a culture in which working and learning are so interwoven, it will be impossible to identify where one begins and the other ends."     Rick DuFour, 2007.


Teams of educators throughout the district are working collaboratively to ensure continuous improvement.  We refer to these teams as Professional Learning Communities as the participants are committed to a shared vision and outcomes and work with one another to learn , to support implementation of initiatives, and to ultimately enhance student learning and growth. Some of our PLCs are listed below.
