Horizon Middle School Earns Model PLC Acceptance For Raising Student Achievement
Posted on 08/23/2018
PLC Model School ImageHorizon Middle School in Osceola County has been recognized by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement. Horizon Middle received recognition for its model Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is on-going through a results-oriented, collaborative culture of learning by adults.

Schools are recognized for this recognition based on strict criteria, including demonstration of a commitment to PLC concepts, implementation of these concepts for at least three years, and clear evidence of improved student learning over that period. Once measurable results can be seen, the school must explain its practices, structures, and culture, and submit its application for consideration by the PLC Review Committee.

“I am extremely proud of our teachers and their commitment to the PLC process and student learning,” said Horizon Middle School Principal Michael Ballone. “This recognition represents many years of fostering a strong culture of collaboration that has been in place at Horizon since the school’s inception.”

As a Recognized Model PLC school, Horizon Middle is listed on allthingsplc.info, where schools share implementation strategies, structures, and performance with other educators interested in improving their schools. Tools for team collaboration, articles and research about PLCs, blog posts, and other related resources are also available on the site.
