Professional Learning Communities
Click the link above to read an interesting article about PLCs!!
A PLC has come to mean "schools where the entire staff is involved in data-based decision making about student needs, where they define school goals and directions to meet those needs and engage in ongoing study, discussion, testing and reflection to change their practice".

Learning Disability with Impairment in Mathematics - click link
A learning disability with impairment in mathematics, (formerly referred to as Dyscalculia) is a broad category of life-long difficulties related to calculation, spatial relationships, timekeeping and other mathematic functions. There is no easy single definition of Dyscalculia at this time. Since the disability varies so much in its presentation, the effects Dyscalculia may have on individual development can be just as varied. For example, two individuals with a learning disability with impairment in mathematics may have varying degrees of math comprehension and performance. In some cases, short term memory may be affected.
