Process for Writing an Individualized Professional Development Plan (IPDP)

A license renewal requires 18 CEUs of professional activities or 6 semester hours of coursework, or any combination of the two. These CEUs must be pre-planned by writing a Professional Development Plan (IPDP) and approved by our LPDC committee.

PLEASE NOTE: Any activities that happen prior to license effective date and approval of IPDP plan by local LPDC committee will not be accepted. Your building has LPDC committee members who will help you with this process. To see a list of members, click HERE.

Step 1:  Have the following documents before writing your plan: 

1.   Your current year professional growth plan goals (if applicable) 

2.  Your district's current and projected goals and iniatives as well as a any directional system or vision in place.
Step 2:  Complete the online IPDP form and click submit.  Follow the direction below or click Here for step by step directions with visuals you can follow on how to fill out the form.
  • Fill out your information
    •  All fields are mandatory except second license information as many do not have this.  If you have more than 2 licenses, please enter the two most recent.

  • Write your District Goal.  To write this, review your district's current and projected iniatives and any directional systems in place.  Select TWO professional standards that align with your District Goal.

  • Write Professional Goal #1.  To write this you may use the professional growth goals you have in place in your district or come up with your own.  Consider what you plan to do in the next five years as you write your goal.  Then select TWO professional goals that align with your goal.

  • Write Professional Goal #2 repeating the steps above.  Then select TWO professional goals that align with your goal.

Tips/Suggestions for goals:

  • Use the CEU Options sheet to help you with ideas on what you may like to pursue in the next five years

  • Remember you are NOT writing activities so be sure you write GOAL statements not activities.
  • For sample IPDP goals, click here

  • If you need additional help, use the OTES Self-Assessment  as a tool to see what areas could be further developed over the next five years.

Your IPDP will be automatically emailed to Lisa Tobin at [email protected].  You MUST submit your IPDP Form no later than one week prior to the committee meeting.
