Calibrating Your PLC's

with Paul Farmer, Solution Tree

Best Practices for Fine-Tuning Your Teams

Gain a big-picture view of the PLC process and learn how to customize it to meet the needs of your school or district. During this one-day session, you and your team will discover how to create and maintain a healthy collaborative culture, as well as how to answer the four critical questions every PLC must address.


At the end of the day you and/or your team will:



  • Review and discuss the basics of a PLC
  • Reaffirm the do’s and don’ts of a PLC
  • Learn what highly effective collaborative teams do in a PLC
  • See and share examples of effective team practices
  • Develop a plan of action to continue your PLC journey
