In 1996, Ohio's General Assembly authorized the establishment of Local Professional Development Committees (LPDCs) and mandated that such be established in every school district and chartered nonpublic school by September 1998 (Ohio Revised Code 3319.22). The purpose of the committees is to review the coursework and other professional development activities proposed and completed by educators within the district to determine if the requirements for renewal of certificates or licenses have been met with the exception of professional pupil services licenses that require credentialing through related licensure boards.
Willoughby-Eastlake's LPDC Handbook and the District's Strategic Goals can be found to the right. These files, along with the forms in PD Express
, will allow you to complete your IPDP, Professional Development Applications, and License/Certificate Renewal.
