to Alcott Elementary School designating them a Professional
Learning Community model.

Alcott Elementary joined an exclusive group of schools across the country for its dedication to improving student learning.

On Monday, an all-school assembly was held to announce that Alcott had been named a National Model of a Professional Learning Community at Work by the All Things PLC Foundation.

The title has been bestowed on a total of 160 individual schools in the nation and only one other in Nebraska: Papillion-LaVista South High School.

“What you have done places you in an extremely elite class of schools across the nation,” said Craig Kautz, superintendent of Hastings Public Schools, during the assembly. “It was not easy for you to win this award. While you didn’t know anything about it, they had questions about you. They wanted to make sure that you were worthy of this honor, and they decided that you were.”
