West Carroll High School

Professional Learning Community (PLC)

PLC  

 

Dear Parents,

             West Carroll High School is adopting a Professional Learning Community (PLC) model for our staff and students effective January 6th, 2016

 Professional learning community (PLC) 

  An ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve. Professional learning communities operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators.

             The very essence of a WCHS Professional Learning Community is a focus on and a commitment to the learning of every student.  It is logical to conclude then, that if the organization is to become more effective in helping all students learn, the adults in the organization must also be continually learning. Therefore, structures are created to ensure staff members engage in job-embedded learning as part of their routine work practices.  WCHS staff members will ask the following question:

 1.      What do we want our students to learn?

2.      How will we know when they learn it?

3.      What will we do if they don’t learn it?

4.      What will we do if they already know it?

In order to implement the PLC at WCHS, we are modifying our schedule on Wednesdays.  On Wednesdays only, the official school day would start at 8:30, with the first bell at 8:20.  There will be no loss of instruction time with this change.

 The PLC would be implemented under the following conditions:

  1. Bus transportation will still run at the normal times.
  2. Breakfast will be served at the normal time and extended until 8:20 a.m.
  3. West Carroll High School will officially start Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m.
  4. Study hall will be available on Wednesdays at 8:00 a.m.

 *This initiative is only taking place at WCHS.  WCPS and WCMS will operate as normal.

West Carroll High School - 2015-2016

Welcome back to West Carroll High School!  The 2015-2016 school year is projected to be one of the best in our history.  I want to welcome our new staff: Stephen Rudnicki (Social Studies), Ashley Wagenknecht (Math), and Tom Walczak (Chemistry and Physics).  Casey Gehant will be coming back to us and working for us in the Special Education department.

Here are some new features to the 2015-2016 school year: 

We added online registration and online payment options for families. 

We spent some time and money updating all four of our restrooms for our students, staff, and visitors.  We made some updates to our cafeteria and lobby areas.

We gave the football bleachers a much needed facelift.

Every student received a .org Gmail account to better sync with our staff’s technology.

Health received new e-textbooks.

The Thunder Way will continue to be our focus at WCHS, as we recognize our students for their outstanding performances in the classroom, on the court, and in the community.

 Go Thunder!
