To move toward educational excellence leaders, teachers, and district administrators must be strategic in planning for instructional success. As this planning takes place, I believe that the concept of "Professional Learning Communities" (PLC) should occupy a large space in a school strategic plan for success. Strategic planning should be viewed as "Strategic Thinking" about what is working and what standards, if any, should be set in an undetermined and constant changing educational system. This task requires a large amount of communication between all stakeholders involved in the education of our children. The majority of this communication can be done though the power of professional learning communities. A crucial element to this success is the implementation of the six realms of meaning.
