Local Professional Development Committee

About Your Professional Development

Professional development is required for continued licensure for all educators and administrators. To be of high quality, professional development is guided by the learning needs of all students, includes accepted theory on the learning needs of educators and incorporates a planned progression for improvement on a continuing basis. A professional development plan that fulfills the licensure renewal requirements is based on the needs of the educator, the students, the school, and the school district in which the educator is currently employed.

Steps to License Renewal

Submit a new IPDP to LPDC Committee immediately upon receiving your new license

Maintain ALL DOCUMENTATION

All course work/CEUs completed before an approved IPDP can not be applied towards renewal.
