Professional Learning Committee
The purpose of the Professional Learning Committee is to contribute to the academic success of multilingual students/English learners by providing guidance regarding professional development best practices. Our work focuses on providing LEAs with guidelines about how to approach systemic and improvement-oriented professional learning. The committee also collects experiences from SEAs and LEAs to provide ideas on how to best utilize federal funds with respect to training, coaching, mentoring and modeling. The committee researches, evaluates and recommends approaches that capitalize on existing expertise, online open source resources as well as education partners using research-based approaches to all topics related to the education of multilingual learners/ELs.
We meet virtually on a monthly basis. Meetings are by Zoom link invitation. Please contact Allyson Newton at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about joining our efforts!
