SUSTAINING SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT: Professional Learning Community
Schools that function successfully as professional learning communities are able to readily acclimate and respond to new policies and other changes. In a professional learning community, teachers and administrators (1) share a vision focused on student learning, (2) share leadership and decision making, and (3) work and learn together as they continually examine instructional practices — all of which are supported by strong personal and professional relationships, time for collaboration, and good communication.
