Staff Development/Professional Development (PD) Overview


    The purpose of the Staff Development Department is to provide high-quality research-based professional learning opportunities that build the knowledge and skill of educators and lead to effective teaching practices, supportive leadership, and improved student results. The Staff Development Department works collaboratively and serves in an advisory capacity with departments and schools in the district that offer professional learning to properly award Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the maintenance of professional licensure of the staff.  Adapted from Learning Forward


    Due to the current CEU processing volume and the number of ways CEUs were able to be submitted, please submit all applicable CEU documentation in a HARD COPY format, via courier to ‘Blaire Traywick @ PDC’. Please do not submit via Google or email. Incomplete submissions cannot be processed. 


    CEU-history may be viewed in HRMS (intranet only). Please read: How to check my CEU history in HRMS. After reading the information in the previous link, click on hrms ceu bullet  in the list of links on the left side of UCPS's Staff Development webpage.  Please know that your PD transcript in True North Logic/NCEES notes only the PD/courses completed in TNL/NCEES. HRMS is the official record for your CEU history.
