Franklin Professional Learning Communities
During our Professional Learning Community days, our teaching staff works to ensure the continued improvement and success of our learning outcomes for each of our students. Many parents may wonder what actually happens during a PLC day at Franklin? Great question! Our monthly scheduled PLC day provides our teaching staff the unique opportunity to focus their attention collaboratively to improve student learning using the following themes:
• Discuss content and grade level curriculum using state and local standards
• Research "Best Practice" teaching strategies
• Share lessons and assessments
• Review student achievement data
Our Franklin PLC consists of our teaching team working collaboratively to improve the education of the students at Franklin Elementary School!
The Writing Committee was hard at work organizing and creating a common K-2 writing rubric to use across the grade levels in order to build consistency as a way to show student growth.
The Reading Committee focused on reviewing our needs for adding additional non-fiction resources to each grade level and planning the Franklin Family Reading Night.
The PBS Committee was focused on reviewing our Benchmark of Quality results and developing a plan of action to target the areas in which we need to improve.
The Franklin Math School Improvement Committee works together to give students a cohesive and rigorous math education throughout grades K, 1 & 2 at Franklin school. Our current focus is on improving students' fluency with addition and subtraction concepts.
