Three years ago, Evans and his team decided that they wanted to make a bold change to improve their school. The faculty and staff worked tirelessly to reinvent their school and culture to improve student achievement. Recently, Moores Mill Intermediate School was recognized as a National Model PLC School for their student achievement and implementation of the Professional Learning Community Process. They are 1 of 200 schools in North America to hold this distinction. Moores Mill’s success is based on a collaborative culture that focuses on learning.
