You’ve identified select pain points, you’ve organized collaborative teacher teams, and you’ve made attempts at adjusting scheduling to improve meetings—but you still aren’t seeing the learning outcomes you expected. Perhaps you’re not fully implementing solutions for the four critical questions of a professional learning community (PLC).
Tom Many, EdD, and Brian Butler from from the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association* may have the answer: “Moving schools from PLC Lite (dipping their toe into the water) to PLC Right (diving headfirst into the pool) requires a cultural shift.”
Creating a positive culture shift does not happen overnight, but is still well within your grasp—if you're willing to dive headfirst into that pool and adopt the full power of the PLC at Work® process.
