Professional Learning Council

The goal of the PLC is to improve the number of students that select mathematics and engineering as career options and to improve the success rate of students pursuing these options.  The PLC is setting up systems to collect data about student performance which will then be used to suggest improvements.

These improvements will be piloted and assessed for impact.  This group will be in a good position to address issues that impact students as they transition from one educational level to the next.
