Solution Tree in Arkansas

Higher levels of learning for all since 2017

Since August 2017, Solution Tree and the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) have engaged in a partnership to develop and expand the Professional Learning Communities at Work® process across Arkansas. Participating schools and districts were selected through a rigorous application and evaluation process.

Eleven schools and one district were selected in the first year. These schools serve as working models for the professional learning community process, conducting action research and sharing best practices with other schools throughout the state. In the 2018–19, 2019–20, 2020-21, and 2021-22 school years, additional schools and districts were selected for a total of fifty-two schools and seven districts throughout the state.

“Our mission is to help Arkansas’ educators and students alike benefit from the transformative process of implementing professional learning communities.”

Solution Tree President and COO Ed Ackerman

The PLC at Work® process is a proven path to educational equity and excellence, and our work in Arkansas schools and districts is increasing learning for students across the state.
