Puzzle Builders

PUZZLE BUILDERS PLC

Tools and Skills for Putting the Puzzle Together

Through synchronous and asynchronous work, you will learn and practice the tools and skills needed for operationalizing the scheduling vision of your school design team.  Once your team identifies the types of experiences you want for your kids and teachers, making it "work on paper" can be the hardest part. With Tegy's schedule-modeling software, TimeDesigner, you will create multiple iterations of schedule scenarios that will illuminate the trade-offs of different decisions and ultimately help you find a solution that best accomplishes your goals for your students and teachers.

Prepare for the Weekly PLC Convening (2 - 4 hours)

BETWEEN THE PLC CONVENINGS: Complete any assigned activities for the week.​ Find the work in the weekly section (left-hand menu). Plans are to post them by Wednesday evening each week.

The Day of the Live Session

  1. Click on the appropriate week on the left-hand menu.
