PLC Plan


BrodheadHigh School has established professional learning community teams that will collaborate together to promote both student and teacher growth. (PLC’s)


PLC is a group of people working together to improve student learning and promote teacher collaboration.


There will be six PLC teams: English, Science, Math, Social Studies, Arts and Vocations. Arts will consist of Art, Choir, Band and Spanish. Careers will include Tech Ed, FACE, PE and Business. Each teacher will only belong to one team. These teams will meet once every three weeks. Core areas have a common planning time; others will meet before/after school. These meetings will be run by department heads or a chosen leader for that group.
