LPDC Resources and Links

Template Professional Development Spreadsheet

Employees may choose to utilize this resource to document professional development activity for licensure renewal and keep a running record of professional development hours earned over the course of a licensure cycle.  Employees must also present documentation of earned professional development activities (certificates, transcripts, etc.) when renewing a license through the LPDC (Please click on the document link, save a copy to your drive, then rename it for your personal use).

The Southern Ohio ESC Local Professional Development Committee took steps to approve online professional development opportunities listed below and PublicSchoolWorks modules in order to help educators in meeting the requirements for license renewal. If you know of other opportunities which could be approved and shared with our organization, please contact a member of the LPDC.
