Professional Learning Communties (PLCs) school reform movement that is grounded in decades of research. The purpose of this research was to investigate whether or not a PLC would help in cultivating a culture of learning and collaboration at a small charter school in Delaware. The research involved interviews of teachers, administrators and a data coach and observations of a PLC in action. The findings involved three major themes: Prescription vs. Description, Supportive Conditions and Transformation. Based on the findings, a recommendation was made to establish a PLC at CCS using a three-pronged approach involving laying a foundation, familiarization and formation.
