Are you confused about connecting Formative Assessment, PLCs, and RTI processes?


Are you looking for a clear roadmap to implement these concepts in your school or classroom?  



Delve into the heart of evidence-based school systems: Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). Imagine a well-oiled machine running smoothly, quietly, and with high efficiency.


We'll explore how these important concepts:

  • PLCs facilitate the collaboration needed for educators to thrive and students to excel. 
  • Learn how PLCs are connected to Common Formative Assessment and a Guaranteed Viable Curriculum. 
  • Examine how PLCs drive differentiation and interventions in a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) process, promoting equitable learning outcomes
  • By the end of this workshop, you'll be prepared to cultivate PLCs that fuel your school's educational engine.


Who should attend: Teachers, Teacher Coaches, Assessment Directors, Curriculum Directors, Principals
