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.
