Professional Learning Community Success Stories
Professional Teaching and Learning Cycle, Lancaster School District:
The Professional Teaching and Learning Cycle (PTLC) is an ongoing cyclic process designed to work systemically to improve the quality of professional development, the use of data to inform instructional and programmatic decisions, the alignment of curriculum, instruction, and assessment to the state standards, the monitoring of student learning, and leadership support systems for continuous school improvement. SEDL's Research and Evaluation staff conducted an evaluation of the extent to which the PTLC process was changing teaching and learning in the Lancaster County School District.
Congratulations to Clinton Elementary School and Rosemary Middle School.
Both of these South Carolina schools are finalists for Learning Forward's Learning Team Awards. SEDL is proud to have helped these schools implement professional learning teams as part of their school improvement efforts.
