Professional Learning Communities, or “PLCs,” are educators who meet to collectively improve student learning and achievement. PLCs engage in a continuous cycle of collaborative inquiry questioning based on classroom practices in an effort to build a shared knowledge as professionals. These meetings occur at regularly scheduled times throughout the school year and members work together to improve curriculum, instruction and discuss the roles of teacher leaders in schools.Learn More
