TEACHER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING 2017-2018
iPlan Days were built into our district calendar to ensure that all teachers had time to discuss and build consistency in understanding of the new curriculum, as well as time to collaborate on the integration of technology. For the 2017-2018 school year, these dates are as follows: August 16, September 11, October 16, January 15, February 19, and April 9.
During these days, teachers will be grouped by grade level and content/course as a teacher PLC group. The PLC group will be lead by one of their peers called an Instructional Lead Learner. Together teachers will complete the Unit Protocol to ensure all have the same understandings. In addition, the Unit Protocol will be a document where all teachers across the district for that course/content can collaborate throughout the implementation of each unit.
