Build deep content knowledge of the PLC at Work® process

On-site professional learning

When a school or district functions as a professional learning community (PLC), educators within the organization embrace high levels of learning for all students. They work collaboratively for continuous improvement, using data to guide their efforts. The educators within a PLC know that their work is an ongoing process involving collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve.

With the help of a certified associate, your staff will learn practical strategies for implementing and sustaining the PLC at Work® process in your school. There’s never been a better time to do this work.

Build, deepen, and sustain your skills with experts such as Tim Brown, Robert Eaker, Janel Keating, Mike Mattos, Anthony Muhammad, and Regina Stephens Owens.
