Knox Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

Our Knox teachers have been hard at work all year in their PLCs. Teachers have studied the Prioritized Standards (Critical Concepts) and broken them down into learning targets. Each Course has developed a Year at a Glance to maximize instructional time. During PLC meetings, our team is focused on successful student outcomes. What have our students learned? How do we know that they have learned it? What are our next steps for support and enrichment? Our focus on a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum for all students. With data at the core of our work, we can make informed decisions about instructional practices and pedagogy to support success for all students. Here are some photos of our Knox PLCs at work.
