Central Middle School has been named a National Model PLC School.

PLC stands for Professional Learning Community—a continuous process in which educators work collaboratively to achieve better results for the students they serve. Professional learning communities operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous learning for educators.

Edmond Public Schools hosted the 2016 PLC at Work Institute at Santa Fe High School, June 1-3. This newly recognized Model School was well represented by 30 faculty members who had the opportunity to collaborate with educators across seven states on teaching practices, learning techniques and curriculum that they are excited to implement at Central.
