The Principal’s Role in the Implementation of Professional Learning Communities: From Compliance to Change
Campus administrators have the responsibility to be both building managers and instructional leaders ensuring they are improving instructional practices and student achievement. Learning how these specific tasks can be accomplished while maintaining all their other campus responsibilities is critical to the success of aspiring administrators. This work can and has been accomplished through the implementation of weekly professional learning communities (PLC) with administrators playing an active role in these meetings. Through interviews, observations, and a focus group discussion this study seeks to better understand the role of the administrator in the implementation and process of professional learning communities. This research seeks to understand the administrators’ beliefs, actions, and decisions with the intent to support aspiring administrators seeking to make a difference in their communities for both teacher and students through PLCs.
