District/ESD Professional Learning Teams (PLT)

Educator Effectiveness District/ESD Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) are collaborative teams of teachers and building/district administrators who support district-wide implementation of the Oregon Framework (SB290/ESEA waiver) and the Common Core State Standards in a manner specific to each district/ESD’s needs.

PLTs will work to increase communication and clarification of educator expectations between the Oregon Department of Education and schools throughout the state. Through Oregon’s Network for Quality Teaching and Learning, ODE will provide financial and professional development support.
