District 201 Attends PLC Conference

The Professional Learning Communities (PLC) Conference is a three day seminar offering educational professionals insight on valuable tools to help better serve students.  Approximately 80 teachers and administrators from District 201 attended the three day conference held on August 4, in Adlai Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire.

“I learned what other districts were doing and it proved to me that Morton is on the cutting edge with what we have accomplished with our teacher collaboration model of PLT’s,” said District 201’s Director of Mathematics Mary O’Sullivan about her experience at the conference.  “I also learned about RTI [Response To Intervention] and how we can best implement it for our district.”

Several workshops were held and keynote speakers included Rebecca DuFour on “First Things First: Building the Solid Foundation of a Professional Learning Community at Work”, and Richard Eaker on “Kid by Kid, Skill by Skill: Being a teacher in a Professional Learning Community.”  Morton teachers and administrators attended the conference hoping to gain better insight into the PLC experience and learn valuable strategies to share with their colleagues.
