Casey led the staff at Tomé Elementary in refining their professional learning community (PLC) practices from 2013 to 2018. In 2017, they achieved status as a Model PLC School. Tomé is currently one of two model schools in the state of New Mexico. They are also one of two schools in the state certified at Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the Marzano High Reliability Schools Framework.

In his current role, one of his primary tasks is to assist the other schools in the district in strengthening their PLC and RTI processes.
