Professional Learning Communities
Effective professional learning communities engage teams in a cycle of continuous improvement, promote collective responsibility for student learning, and support alignment of individual, team, school, and school system goals.
Learning Forward supports districts in developing cultures of learning and implementing PLCs with fidelity. We work with schools and systems to emphasize the “L” in PLCs. By focusing on learning, we guide educators to employ a cycle of continuous improvement process where change, instructional improvement, and increased student learning are the goals. Learning Forward makes learning the intention of collaboration.
Learning Forward works with system, school and teacher leaders to set a vision for PLCs and ensure educators convene regularly to engage in collaborative professional learning that strengthens their practice and increase student results.
