East Prairie operates as a Professional Learning Community (PLC). A PLC is educators committed to working collaboratively in ongoing processes of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve. PLCs operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous, job-embedded learning for educators. Watch to learn more about our work.
