Why PLC at Work?

Developing a collaborative PLC culture is the foundation for ensuring your system or school succeeds.

  • A Focus on Learning
    The fundamental purpose of the school is to ensure that all students learn at high levels.
  • A Collaborative Culture and Collective Responsibility
    In order to ensure all students learn at high levels, educators must work collaboratively and take collective responsibility for the success of each student.
  • A Results Orientation
    Educators in a PLC focus on results – evidence of student learning.

To make progress on your PLC journey, it is critical that teachers and leaders at all levels fully embrace each of these key ideas. Our experts and authors can help you build staff commitment and develop your school’s capacity to create a PLC that provides the best education possible for your students.
