Local Professional Development Committee & Forms

Local Professional Development Committee (LPDC) 

The Educational Service Center (ESC) of Northeast Ohio's Local Professional Development Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving all Individual Professional Development Plans (IPDP) and professional development activities that educators propose/complete for the purpose of licensure maintenance and renewal. The LPDC meets every second Tuesday of the month during the school year and does not typically meet from July through September.

All certificated employees are required to submit an Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) outlining professional development goals for the current licensure cycle. The IPDP must be submitted to the committee within sixty (60) days of being hired and/or receiving the initial five-year professional license. Regardless of the number of licenses held individuals are only required to complete and submit one Individual Professional Development Plan. The plan must be revised at the beginning of each new licensure cycle. Annual workshops are held by the LPDC to assist educators in filing their plans and professional development activities with the committee.

Employees are encouraged to review the ESC of Northeast Ohio Local Professional Development Committee’s handbook.  Questions regarding the Local Professional Development Committee can be directed to Michele Shrefler.
