Professional Learning Communities

Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

Eastern Promise Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) are designed to foster the development of opportunities for early college credit. Over the past few months, PLC leaders and groups have met to create proficiency assessments. Most of these groups are set to have training sessions to be delivered in the Fall. Schools and teachers wishing to participate in offering a credit by proficiency opportunity during the 2014-15 school year MUST attend the appropriate training session. Meeting dates are listed below.


PLC members may choose to receive the graduate credit, or they may choose to receive a stipend equal to the cost of the credit ($286.75). PLC members are required to have at least one assessment meeting each year. For the work associated with the assessment both at the meeting and outside of that time, each K-12 PLC member will receive $500. If necessary, a PLC group may conduct a second assessment meeting. The PLC leader is responsible to determine if an additional assessment meeting is necessary and if any additional payment will apply. In order to receive either the graduate credit, stipend or assessment payment, each PLC member is required to submit a completed reimbursement form.  The forms are available at each PLC meeting and will be collected and returned to Laurie Powell. Incomplete forms will not be processed.  Please contact Laurie Powell if you have any questions regarding reimbursement for PLC meeting attendance.
