MPPLN is a statewide collaborative infrastructure supporting high quality professional learning opportunities that are equitable, consistent and support the implementation of the Montana Common Core Standards.

According to members, the MPPLN is valued because it provides a forum for the following:

o   Collective intelligence

o   Attention to equitable access, according to region and students’ ability levels  

o   Networking inside and outside of OPI

o   Learning and sharing OPI initiatives & programs                                                                           

o   Principals & school leaders receive so much information, providers can provide targeted help

o   Coordinated communication and cooperation to limit expenses associated with travel

o   PR - Building a more positive public image about OPI and public education in general

o   Creating consistent messages regarding professional learning

MPPLN meets twice yearly.  The next meeting date has not yet been set, but will take place in the fall.
