Participative Decision Making (PDM) refers to the concept of allowing those involved with the work to be contributing members in the decision-making process. This study uncovers how one Nebraska district uses PDM in their Professional Learning Community (PLC) collaborative time. The purpose of this study was to examine teacher and administrator perception of the value, and perceived effectiveness of the use of PDM within PLC programs. Furthermore, to discover how administrators and teachers differ in their perception of value, use, and necessity of PDM within the district.
