Eastside received exciting news! We have been recognized as a Model Professional Learning Community at work! We are 1 of 5 schools in Arkansas to receive this honor, and 1 of about 200 schools in the US and Canada.
PLCs are schools and districts in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is on-going, job-embedded learning for the adults who serve those students. The three big ideas of a PLC call upon educators to:
Focus on learning.
Build a collaborative culture.
Create a results orientation.
Schools are recognized based on strict criteria, including demonstration of a commitment to PLC concepts, implementation of these concepts for at least three years, and clear evidence of improved student learning over that period. Once measurable results can be seen, the school must explain its practices, structures, and culture and submit its application for consideration by the PLC Review Committee.
Eastside has worked so hard for 3 years to raise student achievement, and overall school success by focusing on learning, building a collaborative culture, and focusing on results!
