Starting in 2021-2022, LPDC will be transitioning to an Online Platform for IPDP and Professional Development accounting towards the renewal of your license. More information will be shared in August 2021.
LOCAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE (LPDC)
Professional Goals and Licensure Requirements
For licensure, everyone working under a five-year license must have an Individual Professional Learning Plan (IPDP) on file. The portion of this process that deals with professional goals is Goal Setting Page (Form A). Two or three goals are identified for the period of the license (5 years). All coursework/workshops/conferences used to renew the license must be connected to the identified goals and be pre-approved. If you take coursework/workshops/conferences without pre-approval the teacher runs the risk of them not being approved and counting toward the IPDP.
The LPDC Committee meets monthly to review Individual Professional Learning Plans.
