Description:

Districtwide alignment is the organizational equiv¬alent of ensuring that every student learns. To realize its full potential, all levels and all roles districtwide need to become aligned around the three ¿big ideas¿ of a PLC: ensuring a focus on learning, building a collaborative culture, and establishing a results orientation. For each of these big ideas, there are certain ¿non-negotiables¿¿things around which there must be common agreement and expectations.
