Sheridan High School was recently recognized by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement through the school’s successful implementation of the Professional Learning Communities at Work process.

According to information provided by SHS, PLCs are schools and districts in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is on-going, job-embedded learning for the adults who serve those students.

The three big ideas of a PLC call upon educators to focus on learning, build a collaborative culture, and create a results orientation. SHS Principal Brent Leibach said that he’s extremely proud of the staff at the high school, and that their commitment to excellence creates a learning environment that puts the school in the top-tier of high schools in the region.

Schools are recognized based on strict criteria, including demonstration of a commitment to PLC concepts, implementation of the concepts for at least three years, and clear evidence of improved student learning over that period. Once measurable results are seen, the school must explain its practices, structures, and culture and submit its application for consideration by the PLC Review Committee.
