The Way We Work: Professional Learning Community Essentials

3 Big Ideas of a PLC


We acknowledge that the fundamental purpose of our schools is to help all students achieve high levels of learning, and therefore, we are willing to examine all our practices in the light of their impact on learning.


We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose of learning for all. Collaborative teams will be inclusive and work interdependently with all departments to meet the needs of each student.


We assess our effectiveness on the basis of results rather than intentions. Individuals, teams, and schools seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.
