EBP Phase 2 Grant: SWLSB Highlights 2017-2018
Project 1: SWLSB Evidence-based Practice Project – Using PLCs to improve student learning in the Academic Consolidation program
- Goals: The goal of this Evidence Based project was to change teaching efficacy through a PLC model in order to consolidate the learning of ‘at risk’ students entering the high school system to increase the likelihood of these at-risk students graduating.
- Participants: A total of 24 PLC meetings took place in the 4 schools that offered the Academic Consolidation program. These PLC meetings involved a total of 25 teachers, 4 administrators and 6 educational consultants.
- Next steps: The next logical steps would be to continue this PLC project in the two schools that are continuing to offer the AC program next year but to add other high schools where PLCs can be used in an attempt to help ‘at risk’ students. In the next phase of this project the PLC methodology will be used to develop evidence-based approaches to support teachers in their attempt to address the needs of these vulnerable learners.
