Thomas W. Bailey Attorney at Law
November, 2022 Comments from Beaver County Superintendent & Educators  Who completed this course

"I believe the implementation of the professional learning community (PLC) may be advantageous to educating staff of their professional responsibilities contained within the Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE) and the Code of Professional Practice & Conduct for Educators. (PA Code of Conduct)"

"I also shared many of the resources with my administrative team and held a modified PLC with them.   They found it beneficial to review the PA Code of Conduct and quite honestly, some were not aware of the MCEE."

"I shared the PDE resources and modeled how to find answers to questions by searching the Public School Code.
As a small PLC, consisting of five people, we discussed  some of the court cases and shared how we may have (or may not have) reached similar situations."

Educator#1 from the same Beaver County school district wrote:
"The PLC was an effective method to explain our professional responsibilities in MCEE and the PA Code of Conduct because it allowed us to learn together and share a sense of professional responsibility."

"Instead of being told right and wrong, we were able to read the standards and give examples of appropriate professional practice from our experiences."

"Educator #2 from same Beaver County
school district wrote:

"I think the importance of learning these things through a PLC helps us build our professional repertoire.  We have the chance to become experts while learning the standards together."

"I was concerned about taking three days from my curriculum to teach the model lesson so I incorporated my content standards and the International Society for Technology in Education standards and slightly modified the lesson.  The strengths - the lesson was thorough and well thought out.  The weaknesses - the lesson was a little too rigid."
