2023-24 School Year:  PLC Mondays

Professional Learning Communities (PLC) is a research-based collaborative structure used by educators to continuously learn, improve, and adapt teaching methods to help improve student outcomes. ASD will be implementing this weekly 1 hour structure which will support the District’s Board goals around Reading, Math, and College, Career, and Life Readiness.

What is it? PLC's have been in the Anchorage School District since 2016 at the high school level. Now, school for all grades will start one hour later, ONLY on Mondays. Expanding PLCs districtwide next school year is a big but exciting change. Providing this consistent professional development and collaboration time is a valuable tool that will help teachers and school staff support and adjust to student learning needs. We believe that the hour dedicated to teacher learning and collaboration on Mondays will move the needle for student achievement and greatly benefit all ASD students. PLCs equals improved classroom experiences, which leads to better student outcomes.
Bus transportation will start one hour later on PLC Mondays only. School will end at a regular time.
