Professional Learning Communities: Understanding, Developing and Supporting Their Growth
Limited Capacity seats available

Through an interactive presentation, participants will receive information on how significant teacher behavior changes, and documented student learning increases, when PLCs are used. Changes in teacher practice, developed through collaborative staff learning through PLC Teamss, results in increased academic achievement. Through hands-on activities, attendees will learn the components of PLC Teams (roles, agreements, norms, data analysis, SMART goals and evaluation), as well as the required district commitments.

Professional Development Academy
Limited Capacity seats available

For our presentation, we would like to share our district’s journey to provide meaningful and sustainable professional development for our teachers.  The district designed a Professional Development Academy to enhance the individual expertise of thirty eight staff members. Over the course of one school year, participants met in cohorts of ten, every month, and honed their skills in the areas of literacy and data-driven decision making. These experiences not only were quite manageable but also proved to be both sustainable and systemic.
