Celebrating PLC Schools
Celebrating growth in every classroom
At Solution Tree, we know that an educator’s work is more important than ever.
The small and large wins teachers make in their classroom this year will prepare their students for learning next year—a cycle of success that can change lives forever.
Making time to reflect on the lives of students impacted by the Professional Learning Communities at Work® process, as well as the intentional work that educators, administrators, and collaborative teams do every day, strengthens team connections and encourages academic growth.
See how schools and districts across Arkansas have worked to raise student achievement and re-ignite a passion for learning—truly, a cause for celebration.
