September 2018 IIACC Meeting

The third IIACC meeting of the year was a demonstration of Professional Learning Communities in action. After a brief reminder of notes from the May meeting, facilitators led sub-groups  through the process of organizing toward a learning goal in order to produce a final project. These “speed PLCs” were meant to introduce the concept more fully to IIACC members to gear up for their full implementation as a tool of the IIACC.

Lastly, we viewed the following video as a group to better explain the purpose and function of PLCs.
