BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

An area school has been rewarded for its work in professional learning and development.

Blytheville Primary School has been picked as part of the Professional Learning Communities at Work Project. The school is one of eight schools in the state to receive the honor, which allows the school to work with a professional development provider, Solution Tree. 

The project calls for the school to receive up to 50 days of job-embedded training, support, and helping students with their learning. 

Blytheville School Superintendent Richard Atwill said the program will benefit not only the employees but students as well. 

"The idea is if you improve your adult learning and communication and collaboration, they develop the lessons together, develop the curriculum together and that improves the instructional process, the ultimate goal being improving student success," Atwill said.
