“School systems often focus on strategic planning, programs, and change leadership. Collective Efficacy In a PLC At Work® reminds us that people transform systems and high-leverage strategies support the work of a professional learning community. This book provides the tools and resources that school leaders need to impact transformational change and focused implementation of high leverage strategies. When educators utilize these tools, they will be able to maximize the skills of each staff member in a professional learning community.”

Steven Weber, associate superintendent for teaching and learning, Fayetteville Public Schools, Arkansas

“This book not only reveals the power of collective efficacy but also demonstrates the systematic change that can occur when schools put collective efficacy into practice. It illustrates that collective efficacy is the drawstring that opens the curtain to a school’s success.”

Richard Church, executive leadership coach, Fresno County Office of Education, California

“Collective efficacy is the desired outcome from the cultivation of a collaborative culture on the journey of improvement. Using their experiences as frontline practitioners in a districtwide transformation, Matt Navo and Jared J. Savage share their story, insights, lessons learned, and tools developed as they led the journey of becoming a professional learning community (PLC) and developing collective efficacy. A journey of improvement has no place on the path called 'good enough.' If you are seeking to strengthen your collaborative culture and improve student-learning outcomes for all students, this book is a must-read!”

Marc Johnson, former superintendent, Sanger Unified School District, California

“This resource will resonate with school and district leaders at every level and capacity. Navo and Savage address the real-life challenges faced by schools and districts today. They offer practitioners practical examples and tools to effectively navigate the journey of continuous improvement and collective efficacy. Students need leaders of the PLC process to learn from and implement the lessons in this book.”

Casey R. Ahner, educational speaker and PLC at Work® expert

“I had the opportunity to observe Matt Navo and Jared J. Savage’s journey through the educational ranks from teacher, counselor, vice-principal, and principal to superintendent. Through their arduous and challenging journey, they were able to find what works in education and how to implement the positive change needed to improve student performance. They now have the opportunity to share with you a clear and concise road map on how to lead a school or district through challenging times with great success.”

Daniel Chacon, former high school principal, Sanger Unified School District, California

Collective Efficacy in a PLC should be on the desk of every educator, teacher and administrator seeking to establish, lead, and refine the PLC process in their school or district... I have read dozens of books that use buzzwords but never actually strike at the meaning, need, and purpose of leadership, autonomy, true collaboration, and efficacy in the way this book does. It is seldom that you find a resource of this quality. Don’t hesitate—many of the answers you have been seeking can be found in this book.”

W. Richard Smith, educator and author
