Every Video Learning Module (VLM) is a resource in itself with a short video component and a Facilitator Guide – ready to be used in a staff meeting, on-going discussion format or PLC. The videos are carefully edited elements of 2013-14 presentations in our Leadership, Action Teams and Curriculum Directors’ PLC sessions.
The Facilitator Guide that accompanies each VM proposes ways to use the video and the issues each one raises, but that is not all: The Guides also offer you the hand-outs, links and Power Point from that session.

Audience: A small decision-making group that should include the Superintendent, as well as Principal(s), Curriculum Director, Special Education Director, and designated Coaches/Teacher Leaders. This team, will in turn, update and work with their local ‘action teams’ back in the district. The Leadership Implementation teams will charge their local teams with moving the work closer to the classroom level in their SU/SD.
Each Leadership Implementation Team is expected to meet regularly (monthly recommended) to reflect on their progress, identify next steps, and plan concrete actions to be taken.
Purpose: This Leadership Implementation Team Series will guide the work of the school leaders as they analyze, plan, support, and monitor the implementation of the Common Core State Standards across the SU/SD to assure all students have the opportunity to achieve the standards. Over the course of the series, teams will:
• Complete “non-negotiables” needs assessment, so that the team can plan strategies to bring the non-negotiables to reality;
• Learn coaching strategies to support principals (for superintendents), and teachers (for principals) to deepen CCSS implementation which results in increased student performance;
• Design a monitoring and support process to ensure full implementation of CCSS.

Vermont Curriculum Directors/Coordinators or others charged with district curriculum oversight. Some sessions might include other personnel (coaches or teacherleaders) as the content dictates.This is the second year of this PLC lead by Dr. Judy Carr, which offers Curriculum Directors the chance to meet as a community of learners with shared questions, particular totheir roles and responsibilities for implementing the CCSS.
Year two will be action-oriented, creating structures and models for district work. The content is guided by the input from the curriculum directors who were at last year’s series, from those who are part of the PLN Advisory Council, and through guidance from focus forums so that the content, work and discussion stays relevant to the group.
