Target Audience: School and District Leaders and Improvement Teams

“When a school or district functions as a PLC, educators within the organization embrace high levels of learning for ALL students as both the reason the organization exists and the fundamental responsibility
of those who work within it.” Dufour, Dufour and Eaker

Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) have been at the forefront of reform efforts as a viable means of transforming schools to improve student achievement. Today’s educational leaders face complex challenges, and Professional Learning Communities have been at the forefront of reform efforts as a viable and researched based means of transforming schools to close achievement gaps for all students. Our work integrates the PLC model with the RTI at Work Model to support systemic change that has a positive impact on student achievement. This series will bring teams across Vermont together to dive into this work through:

• Teams will learn more about the role the district office plays in collaborating with instructional leaders and guiding coalitions/teacher leadership teams in supporting PLC/RTI implementation and school improvement efforts
• Observe how collaborative teams align their work school wide and district wide to ensure high levels of learning for all students
• Study real life exemplars and artifacts of best practices in action to inform participants next steps in their own school/district
• Receive protocols and templates for teams to move student learning forward and practice using protocols in real time
• Review a process for establishing a guaranteed and viable curriculum and discover strategies for analyzing student learning and making data-informed decisions about next steps on a doable, rapid, PDSA cycle
