September 18 1:30am–3:00pm (ET)
Do you support teachers in small, rural school schools which are also geographically isolated?
Find out how the APL-CORE project implemented regional and school-based collaboration in small, rural schools to support professional learning and improve classroom instructional practice.
Patti Crotti, Senior Program Associate in the Comprehensive School Assistance Program at WestEd, Cricket Kidwell, Assistant Superintendent in the Trinity County Office of Education, county office coordinators, and teachers from the APL-CORE schools will share an easily replicated model based on regional and school-based professional learning communities (PLCs). They will discuss the schools' implementation of the DuFour's PLC concepts and structures to address school needs, school goals, curriculum targets, curriculum development, assessment of student learning, and communication. The presenters will also elaborate on the collaboration between the different APL-CORE partners, the resources developed, and the impact of the project on the schools.
This webinar is aimed at state agencies, regional agencies, and others interested in supporting small, rural schools.
