The PLC Coaching Academies includes six days of on-site training for school or district leadership teams (three sessions, two days each) and a robust selection of resources for each participant and school team. Sessions are designed to develop the capacity for implementing and sustaining PLCs.

School teams will leave each session with a new set of skills and activities as well as an action plan for implementing and teaching what they’ve learned. The result of The PLC at Work Coaching Academy is a cadre of PLC leaders who will act as agents of change in their school or district.

The cost is $8,500 for a team of up to 5 and $1,500 for each additional registration.

Whether you are beginning or advancing your PLC at Work journey, the coaching academies provide the support and professional learning foundation for continuous improvement that leads to high levels of learning for all students.
