At the January 9, 2017 Blair Board of Education meeting, the Board approved to adopt the Friday morning late start for the implementation of the Professional Learning Community model beginning the 2017-18 school year.
A committee of Blair Community Schools teachers and administrators have been researching and studying the concept of Professional Learning Communities (PLC) for over 12 months. The PLC structure has been widely used in schools in our area and across the nation for over 15 years.
The attached document offers information and frequently asked questions about the PLC concept and how it will be implemented in Blair. Web links are also embedded at the end of the document that connect to additional PLC resources and information. The attached document will also be accessible on the school district’s main web page. If you have questions, please contact your child's building principal, Dr. Dani Ladwig (Director of Curriculum and Instruction), or me.
As educators, we are excited to have the necessary and structured time to align curriculum to standards, look at student data to meet the needs of all students, and focus on our mission, "Blair Community Schools.... where ALL students learn".
