Building a Birth-to-College Model of Education

Creating Professional Learning Communities: Building a Birth-to-College Model: Professional Learning Communities outlines how to create Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) of teachers, administrators and family support staff spanning the early childhood to K-12 spectrum. The intent of the PLCs is to create environments where practitioners take the lead in collaboratively studying and piloting effective, developmentally informed practices that prepare children for college, beginning at birth.
