A Powerful PLC Tool

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Solution Tree, one of the nation's premier educational publishers and professional development providers, has announced the release of Global PD-an innovative PLC tool for schools and districts looking to achieve higher levels of student learning and school performance.

Professional learning communities are schools and districts in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is ongoing, job-embedded learning for the adults who serve them. As home of the PLC at Work™ process, Solution Tree developed Global PD to support districts around the world as they work to sustain their school improvement efforts. By utilizing this powerful technology, a school's or district's staff will:

  • Successfully answer the four critical questions of a PLC by determining essential standards, building common assessments, and identifying students in need of intervention or enrichment.
  • Access hundreds of videos and resources from top authors to support professional development.
  • Receive on-demand, personalized virtual coaching from PLC-certi?ed coaches.

"Global PD is the only technology tool on the market that is based on and completely aligned with the PLC at Work™ process," explained Richard DuFour, a leading author on the PLC at Work™ process. "Regardless of where educators are on their PLC journey, we believe that Global PD will be a powerful catalyst for the ongoing professional learning essential to the PLC at Work™ process."

Mike Mattos, a PLC at Work™ visionary, added, "Global PD is an extremely powerful tool that supports a school's ability to identify students for targeted interventions, assess their progress, and share key information with staff and stakeholders. Far more than an intervention program, it supports the PLC at Work™ process by providing the ?exibility for each team, school, and district to focus on the essential standards and assessments deemed critical to student success."
