Build a solid foundation for sustainable school success

Professional Learning Communities at Work® remains the undisputed, research-affirmed process for sustained, substantive school improvement. Despite the ever-changing landscape of education, the three big ideas and four critical questions central to transforming your school or district into a PLC at Work keep educators focused on the right strategies and daily practices that get results.

The PLC at Work Summit is the premier event Solution Tree offers to bring educators around the world together to learn from true champions of this proven path to success. Spend three days with professionals who share your mission to transform education so that every student succeeds. Network with authors and experts who have done this work in classrooms of their own or have helped other teachers and leaders excel.

If you’ve started this work, you know it is challenging and worth the effort. The Summit is a great opportunity to refine your practices and level up shared knowledge. If you are just now exploring the possibilities of PLC at Work, welcome! We are excited to help you get started on your journey!

The three big ideas:

  • A focus on learning
  • A collaborative culture and collective responsibility
  • A results orientation

The four critical questions

  • What do we want students to learn?
  • How will we know when each student has acquired the essential knowledge and skills?
  • How will we respond when some students do not learn?
  • How will we extend the learning for students who are already proficient?

If you are ready to make a serious commitment to high levels of learning for all, this is one event you won’t want to miss.

Who should attend?

  • Teachers
  • Curriculum and Development Specialists
  • Superintendents and Assistants
  • Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Specialists and Directors
  • Principals and Assistant Principals
  • Professional Learning Leaders

Participants will gain insights to

  • Develop a positive successful culture for students and staff
  • Explore the essential actions to target preventions, interventions, extension and remediation
  • Strategically plan to assess and address nonacademic student traits
  • Turn collaborative team practices into instructional practices that accelerate learning
  • Coach competency, not just compliance
  • Use classroom formative assessment to cost effectively improve student learning
  • Minimize bias and conflict and maintain unity-centered relationships, even in the face of hot-button topics

“The speakers were so knowledgeable. We walked away reflecting on what we can do now and what we can do going into the new school year. Each keynote and breakout session was well worth it!”

Melissa MacDonald, teacher, Golden Brook Elementary School, New Hampshire

“Thank you! This is one of the best events I have attended in quite some time. This event made me reflect on my teaching. It allowed me to look at what I am doing and ask myself ‘Are ALL students learning in my classroom?’”
