Discover how the largest elementary school district in Illinois became a flourishing professional learning community. You’ll walk through each step of the PLC journey to learn how the district approached the most vital components of a successful PLC, such as building shared knowledge, forming collaborative teams, and setting priorities.

Nicholas Jay Myers presents a powerful case study of one school district’s transformation into a professional learning community. He walks readers through Schaumburg Township School District 54’s journey as leaders and staff: 

  • Build shared knowledge
  • Define their mission, vision, collective commitments, and goals
  • Form collaborative teams
  • Clarify essential learning questions
  • Utilise common formative assessment
  • Establish systematic intervention and enrichment
  • Administer systemic change

Reduce your own trial and error by using their lessons learned as a road map toward long-lasting change. Myers details the commitment such a process takes and acknowledges that it is not always an easy road. Readers will see, step by step, how to create a strong PLC in their own school community. It’s the true story of how one district made a PLC their reality.
