Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

The Department of Federal and State Programs partners and participates with all FUSD school sites and district departments in professional learning communities (PLCs) to provide equitable and significant learning opportunities to meet the educational objectives of our diverse student populations. We are committed to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps by distributing and targeting federal and state resources to make a difference where there is the greatest need. 

Through the PLC process, stakeholders focus on student learning to ensure that all students are provided with enriched and accelerated educational programs to meet their individual learning goals.  Using the questions below as our guide, we are able to continuously evaluate the effectiveness of our programs and make adjustments to support our students.

1.         What is it we want our students to learn? 

2.         How will we know if each student has learned it?

3.         How will we respond when some students do not learn it? (Intervention)

4.         How can we extend and enrich the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency?
