De Anza staff believe in the Professional Learning Community. Our teachers meet in grade level collaboration meetings weekly to discuss data and plan instruction to best meet the needs of their students. We also have numerous teacher committees who are devoted to ensuring all students succeed through discussing best teaching practices and carefully determining individual student needs.
Through the PLC model, our teams will be focusing on the following four questions:
1. What do we want students to learn?
2. How will we know when have learned it?
3. How will we respond if don't learn it?
4. How will we respond if they already know it or learn it?
