PRofessional Learning Community (PLC) Conference

  • most of the faculty attended Sept. 26-18th in Salt Lake City. (Those who did not had already attended one)
  • The purpose of the PLC is to ensure all students learn at high levels. This is a responce to intervention (RTI) practice
  • Our schedule at Adams is set up in Tiers. Tier 3 is the time for students to receive intervention on things they need whether they are missing essential skills or needing enriching activities to push them.
  • Essential skills need to be posted or presented to parents with the information so parents know what skills their students need.

Honor Roll

  • The question was raised whether our school should have an actual Honor Roll. We currently do not have one in place, but have incentive activities instead so the focus is on growth instead of final scores. Incentive activities were discussed.
