Professional Learning Communities

Launched in 2016, The Fund’s Principal-led Professional Learning Community (PLC) program is designed to help principals collaborate and share best practices and tools to impact school culture and improve student outcomes.

The goals of PLCs are to:

  • Provide principal leaders with an opportunity to utilize their expertise and collaborate with colleagues.
  • Enable principals to share best practices that have improved student achievement across the system.
  • Create a unique cross-district opportunity that will bring diverse principal leaders together for rich cohort learning.

We’re excited to announce that recruitment is underway for our 2017-18 PLCs! Be sure to check back in mid-September, when we’ll announce the new group of principal leaders, participants and PLC topics.
