The Arkansas Department of Education, Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Solution Tree have established a partnership to develop and expand the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) at Work® process within select schools. These sites will serve as working laboratory schools for the PLC at Work® process, conducting action research and sharing best inclusive practices with other schools throughout the state.
This project will have an intentional focus on inclusive practices ensuring students who are IEP eligible as well as other groups of struggling learners have meaningful access to core instruction and established systems of intervention. Participating schools will be part of a collaborative evaluation process (Solution Tree and DESE) that gathers data regarding student achievement, teacher practices, and effective professional development. By submitting an application, the school agrees to be part of any evaluation that is established between DESE and Solution Tree.
