What it is & What it isn't...
What is a PLC?
A PLC is NOT...
A place for us to prioritize students according to their ability. There is no need to separate students based on their performance. All students are able to perform, teachers just need to give them the right tools in order to do so. It is not just another boring professional development in order to waste time.

Goals of a PLC
Identify, give immediate help, and make the students come to get the help, not allow them to make the decision.
2. Teachers need to work together. As well, the school needs to provide the teachers with the opportunity & time to do so.
3. Utilize formative assessments regularly along with summative assessments. Don’t rely solely on summative assessments for intervention data.
4. Have an idea what goals the school, grade level, and teachers want for the students to attain in a given time period.
By helping the PLC group with valuable input there is the greater chance that we are able to attain our school goal of making sure that ALL students go onto the next grade level. Not just barely, but wholly prepared and ready to take on more than just what is expected of them.
