Once is nice but twice is even better.
Benton Middle School has again accomplished something no other school in Louisiana has before. It has been recognized as a 2018 National Model Professional Learning Community for the second year in a row.
The PLC model represents a set of core principles that shifts the focus from ensuring students are taught to ensuring they learn. Promoting a culture of collaboration and working in teams is another critical component.
After a rigorous national PLC review panel assessed Benton Middle School’s overall commitment and successful implementation of PLC core concepts, the Tigers once again received the distinction as a national PLC Model School. It is a reflection of the exemplary work by administration and faculty in establishing a high-achieving professional learning community.
