Results show La Grande teachers feel they have time to collaborate with other educators 

The La Grande School District’s three-year-old Professional Learning Communities program is making a noteworthy impact on the opportunity for teachers to provide a higher quality of education. 

At least that’s what the results of a new survey administered by the state at all public schools in Oregon appears to indicate.

The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning Oregon Survey indicates that La Grande School District teachers have more time to collaborate with fellow educators than many others throughout the state.

“This may mean that many schools do not have PLCs,” said La Grande High School
English and French teacher Kevin Cahill.

The survey was administered at every public school in the state by the Oregon Department of Education, offering teachers and administrators the chance to rank their school on everything from safety to professional development to the availability of technology.

The school district’s PLC program provides teachers with opportunities to meet during the school day to develop strategies for addressing the needs of students using data driven instruction models. The cornerstone of the program are sessions from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. each Monday during which teachers meet. School begins an hour late each Monday because of the PLC meetings.

LHS social studies teacher John Lamoreau describes these sessions as highly productive.
