Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

  • Professional Learning Communities are the foundation for the West Ada School District.  A Professional Learning Community, or PLC, is a group of educators that meets regularly, shares expertise, and works collaboratively to improve teaching skills and the academic performance of students.  Our Wednesday morning weekly collaboration dates, as well as the four early release collaboration dates throughout the school year, provide us collaboration opportunities. 

    Professional Learning Communities focus on four essential questions: 

    1. What do we expect our student to learn?  
    2. How will we know they are learning? 
    3. How will we respond when they don't learn?  
    4. How will we respond if they already know it?
