The purpose of the Greenfield Exempted Village School District’s Local Professional Development Committee (LPDC) is:
- To provide continuing support and encouragement for educators in our district.
- To assist educators in developing their five-year professional development plans in alignment with district/building goals.
- To establish CEU standards for the district.
- To encourage educators to look at their practices, management skills, etc., recognize how these practices affect students, and improve the effectiveness of their teaching.
INDIVIDUAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN (IPDP)
Important reminders regarding IPDPs:
- Neither teachers nor administrators can accrue professional development credits until an IPDP has been approved.
- IPDPs always expire at the end of a licensure period.
- IPDPs can last for five years, but only if written and approved at the beginning of the licensure period.
