“Beware of short-cuts…”
In addition to being a place to go for digital, internet, and textual resources that we recommend and that you have recommended to us, the Center for Authentic PLCs (CAP) helps your school develop and sustain authentic PLCs by working directly with your teachers, administrators, and PLC coaches at your school site.
We recognize that, while the resources are very useful to schools pursuing this important work, real change happens at the school site, working elbow to elbow with the people involved.
For that reason, we favor on-going support, through time, rather than the one-shot presentation approach.
One School at a Time. Our goal at the Center for Authentic PLCs is to help schools attain the highest standard of effectiveness and teacher collaboration in order to make the greatest impact on student learning.

“Well, thank God we finally did something useful during a staff development ... It was the best use of my time during a staff development since I began teaching years ago.”
Ewing Middle School Teacher
“Today’s session was extremely beneficial.
I learned to see classroom situations from the point of view of my students. I also acquired many strategies that will permit my low achievers to feel like good students
whose participation is valued.”
