Case Study Sector
In 1999, the Alcatel-Lucent Foundation in Murray Hill, N.J., funded a multi-year initiative to foster professional learning communities in four school districts nationally. The foundation knew that sustained commitment, external consulting support, and in-depth documentation would be necessary to make the PLCs successful.
With the help of the Philanthropic Initiative (TPI), a Boston-based philanthropic consulting and management group, the foundation developed school-based learning community efforts in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Broward County, Florida; Lancaster, Pennsylvania; and Seattle, Washington.
