The PLC model depends on everyone in the organization
Posted 7/25/18

The PLC model depends on everyone in the organization—from parents, to students, to teachers, to classified staff, to administrators—seeing themselves as learners. There are four essential questions that we must use as our lens when making any education-related decision:

  • What do we expect our students to learn? (Standards-based objectives)
  • How will we know when each student has learned it? (Assessment)
  • How will we respond when some students do not learn it? (Intervention)
  • How will we respond when some already know it? (Enrichment)

Becoming a district-wide professional learning community does not happen overnight. It takes significant planning, and cannot happen without support for all involved in the process. Furthermore, professional learning communities are not a program to be adopted, but a way of being to be developed through authentic work together. Working as site-based and district-wide professional learning communities will allow us to stretch our learning and extend the valuable connections between staff, students, and families in Fremont. Why do this? Because ALL of our students deserve it.
