5 Changing the Focus Old Focus Every student can learn Focus on teaching Isolation Assessment OF learning (Summative) Failure is an option New Focus Every student will learn Focus on learning Collaboration Assessment FOR learning (Formative) Failure is not and option

6 PLC Institute: Intended Outcomes PLC Development What are PLCs? Congruency & Consistent Quality of Instruction How can PLCs improve student achievement and help close the achievement gap? How are collaborative cultures/teams developed? How does a focus on learning differ from a focus on teaching? SLE & IA CORE What can be done when students dont learn/already know? Pyramid Response to Intervention (RTI)

7 PLC Institute: Participant Expectations Share the vision & key information from the PLC institute with colleagues Assist in developing the SIP/PLC action plan Support the implementation of the PLC plan Assist in the development of a collaborative culture Provide leadership & support for PLCs throughout the school year

8 PLC Institute Feedback

9 PLC Feedback I get it! The picture is now complete! Our district has been working towards this for several years. We already have a lot in place with CI, mission, SMART goals, SLE, formative assessment, data, data centers & folders, etc….. It just makes sense! Its not the words Professional Learning Community that makes the difference. It is the emphasis on Learning that drives everything.

10 PLC Feedback Collaboration, Collaboration, Collaboration Importance of culture to enhance learning. We need to focus on the right questions. Collaboration & common assessments will allow me to adapt my strategies as needed by individual students. Where is our Pyramid of Interventions?!! Thanks & Vision

11 PLC Feedback We cant wait for all staff to get onboard…we have to move forward without them. Working with resistant people you cant change peoples attitudes, focus on their behaviors and making better experiences for them. Looking at the student through a different lens. Excellence for all

12 PLC Three Year Plan

13 Share Action Plans Discuss preliminary thoughts on action plans for implementing PLCs. During the school year every School will develop an action plan to implement the PLC framework that will include a timeline, opportunities for input/feedback, action steps from year 2 PLC plan, data collection regarding PLC teams, time spent in collaboration.
