Parent Information Regarding PLC Concept

BCS Parents:

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, and Blair is proposing an adoption of a similar structure that will allow teachers time during the school year to collaborate and focus on student learning and achievement.  Staff members across the district have discussed the work of this committee, and a formal presentation was delivered to the Board of Education during their public work session on November 14, 2016.  

The Board of Education will have further discussion on this topic at the 6:00pm public work session on December 12, 2016.  Following this public work session, a formal proposal to adopt this concept is expected to be on the Board of Education agenda at the regular monthly meeting at 7:00pm on the same evening, December 12, 2016.  The public is welcome to attend the work session and regular meeting.  If approved, this concept and resulting PLC staff development time will begin in August 2017, coinciding with the start of the 2017-18 school year.

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 potentially 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". 

Best regards,

Rex Pfeil
Superintendent of School
