Memo Text

The Arkansas Department of Education is transforming Arkansas to lead the nation in student-focused education.

"The purpose of collaboration - to help more students achieve at higher levels - can only be accomplished if the professionals engaged in collaboration are focused on the right work." (DuFour, 2016)

On Thursday, April 1st, Arkansas teachers will kick off the first statewide collaborative teacher team project to build a system of support for other Arkansas teachers as they focus on student learning. Teams may seek guidance or support from other teacher teams in the same grade level or content area around the professional learning community process. To learn more information, join the teams on Thursday, April 1st from 3:30-4:30 pm.  They will share their monthly meeting times, the process, and the framework for additional support. 

You are invited to a Zoom meeting. 
When: Apr 1, 2021 03:30 PM Central Time (US and Canada) 

Register in advance for this meeting: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
