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 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 is Feb 19-20 at Helena College:

Coffee & lunch will be provided both days.
