"I shared the PDE resources and modeled how to find answers to questions by searching the Public School Code.
As a small PLC, ..., we discussed  some of the court cases and shared how we may have (or may not have) reached similar situations."

7th Grade Educator  11/6/22:

"The PLC was an effective method to explain our professional responsibilities in MCEE and the PA Code of Conduct because it allowed us to learn together and share a sense of professional responsibility."

"Instead of being told right and wrong, we were able to read the standards and give examples of appropriate professional practice from our experiences."

Educator #2 wrote 11/6/22:

"I think the importance of learning these things through a PLC helps us build our professional repertoire.  We have the chance to become experts while learning the standards together."
