The Professional Learning Community (PLC) was established in 2018 via a grassroots effort by media specialists in the region.  While many schools may have a PLC in their building, school library staff are not always the best fit for these models, often getting shunted into other work groups like English or History.  This regional PLC is specifically for school library staff in the 11 counties in southeast Minnesota.  The intent of the group is provide for school library staff a regular meeting in which those attending can examine topics such as instructional practices, student benchmarks, outcomes, sharing what works in the classroom and media center, etc. 

Meetings for 2023-24 school year:

All meetings are from 3-5 p.m. on Zoom. 

If you have further questions about this group or wish to attend, please contact Ashley Dress at
