Poorly defined plans can cost your organization lucrative assignments, or missed opportunities for recognition.

Professional Learning Communities (PLC)

A professional learning community, or PLC, is a group of educators that meets regularly, shares expertise, and works collaboratively to improve teaching skills and the academic performance of students. 176_HCM-1 The term is also applied to schools or teaching faculties that use small-group collaboration as a form of professional development. Shirley Hord, an expert on school leadership, came up with perhaps the most efficient description of the strategy: “The three words explain the concept: Professionals coming together in a group—a community—to learn.”

PLC’s create a shift in focus from just teaching to a more targeted approach to actual learning impacting schools in a very different way. As stated by DuFour, R. (May, 2004), “, every professional involved in the effort must engage with colleagues in the ongoing exploration of three crucial questions that drive the work of those within a professional learning community:

  • What do we want each student to learn?
  • How will we know when each student has learned it?
  • How will we respond when a student experiences difficulty in learning?”

DuFour, R. (May, 2004) states that “a school begins to function as a professional learning community, teachers become aware of the delta between their commitment to ensure learning across the board and the distance between a coordinated response to some students who do not learn. Staff can address these discrepancies by working together to design strategies to ensure struggling students receive additional time and support, regardless of their teacher. Effective PLC’s can intern”.

  • Quickly identifies students who need additional time and support.
  • Deliver meaningful learning interventions on a consistent basis rather than in waiting until summer school.
  • Create a plan to systematically engaged the student until they have mastered the necessary concepts.
