What Role does District Administration play in the Implementation of Professional Learning Communities?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this multi case study inquiry was to examine the role of the district administration in assessing the readiness for change as well as their role in the implementation and support for PLC. The study findings revealed four themes. They were: 1) the changing dynamics of leadership, 2) the development of a sense of collective efficacy and responsibility for student learning, 3) emphasis on collaborative teams versus isolation, and 4) the use of data to drive improved instruction. The implications of this inquiry for practice in education could impact PreK-12 institutions as they attempt to address the pressures of improving student achievement.
