Educator Designed PD

Professional Development Points (PDPs) may be awarded for individual professional learning pursuits if they meet the following DESE requirements:

Ten PDPs may be awarded for activities that represent at least 10 hours of sessions/workshops on the same or similar topic and result in a final product that would serve as an assessment of learning, such as developing a school-based activity or curriculum or publishing written material.

Fifteen PDPs may be awarded for curriculum development that is published or formally shared within the district.

Please submit this form to request PDPs for self-directed learning. Alternatively, for school- or department-based professional learning, a Department Head, Director, or Principal may submit a PD Proposal Form through Vector Solutions. Proposals are accepted at any time during the school year.
