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


  • your license
  • all forms
  • transcripts
  • certificates of contact hours
All course work/CEUs completed before an approved IPDP can not be applied towards renewal.

License Renewal

An educator/staff member wishing to renew a professional must receive the approval of his or her Local Professional Development Committee.  An Individual Professional Development Plan that includes the following requirements MUST be completed during the five year period following the issuance of the license to be renewed:
  • Six semester hours of coursework related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure; or
  • 180 contact hours in workshops or equivalent activities related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure as approved by the Local Professional Development Committee of the employing school or school district. 
  • Coursework, workshops, or other equivalent activities may be combined.

  • The Standards-Based IPDP must be consistent with the growth of the educator, focus on student achievement, and the goals of the Greenville City School District.
