Professional Learning Communities

A Professional Learning Community (PLC) is an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in repeated cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve. The key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators.

The attributes of a PLC include:

  • A Focus on Learning
  • A Collaborative Culture with a Focus on Learning for All
  • Collective Inquiry into Best Practice and Current Reality
  • Action Orientation: Learn by Doing
  • A Commitment to Continuous Improvement
  • Results Orientation

Our foundational purpose is to ensure high levels of learning for all. These four essential questions drive our staff in their daily work:

  1. What do we want students to learn?
  2. How will we know if they have learned it?
  3. What will we do if they don't learn it? What interventions are in place to assist students who are experiencing difficulty?
  4. What will we do if they already know it? What enrichments are in place for advanced students?

Having a shared mission, vision, values and goals allow the Mountain View School District to maintain a collaborative culture throughout our entire school system. Schools improve when teachers are given time and support to work together to refine essential students learning, develop common assessments for learning, analyze evidence of learning, and learn from one another.
