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 2015-16 school year MUST attend the appropriate training session. Meeting dates are listed below.
