Smaller Learning Communities.   Refers to students and the staff that work with them.   Can have several SLC's in one physical building.   Examples of types of SLCs are: vertical (9-12) neighborhoods, career academies, and 9th grade academies.   Ideally, there are no more than 500 students in one SLC.   Teachers sharing students in common and students knowing the adults that they will work with for x period of time (one year, two years, all four years) are also important aspects.
