About PLC at Work®

A powerful process for continued school improvement

The PLC at Work® process is increasingly recognized as the most powerful strategy for sustained, substantive school improvement.

Professional learning communities (PLCs) are schools that empower educators to work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve.

PLC at Work operates under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators. When the PLC at Work process is implemented with fidelity, schools experience dramatic improvement in learning results by both students and adults.

At the heart of the PLC at Work process are four critical questions that drive the daily actions of every team member.

  1. What is it we want our students to know and be able to do?
  2. How will we know if each student has learned it?
  3. How will we respond when some students do not learn it?
  4. How will we extend the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency?

Solution Tree is helping Arkansas educators build collective capacity for continuous improvement and create clarity of purpose, a common vision, collective commitments, and agreed-upon goals to move their school or district forward.
