Session description: PLCs, Data Teams, PLTs, Learning Teams – whatever you call them, these data-driven teams can quickly become a source of real frustration for all involved. Well-meaning but unintentional misteps are often made in initial implementation, setting these teams up for failure despite their enormous potential for improving student outcomes. During this session, we will take a deeper look at the reasons why good teachers sometimes hate PLCs and explore options for improving the culture of collaboration at your site.

"The downfall of low-performing schools is not their lack of effort and motivation; rather, it is poor decisions regarding what to work on."
