Strategy #3: PLC's


Strategy #3:Maintain Professional Learning Communities that allow teachers to work collaboratively to score student work, 

examine data, and discuss teaching practices in order to improve student learning.

Goal: Teachers regularly and frequently work as high-performing teams to ensure that all students learn to high levels.

Baseline: PLCs have been implemented for several school years. PLCs met on a weekly basis during the school day for the 2012/13 school year. 

Grade 9-12 teachers have focused on creating standards for the incoming 9th grade class. Grades 7 and 8 teachers have focused on creating a 

stronger writing curriculum.  PLC's have become embedded in the culture of the school and are valued by teachers. 

2012-13 Benchmark: KMHS PLCs become a "performing"  school based on self-assessment data.  Additionally, other school goals and 

benchmarks for the year are met.
