  • Formal PD is required to renew your teaching license in Indiana (and Georgia) Indiana – must have 90 points in 5 years. No requirements of how much from where… PGP : Professional Growth Plan How to select the professional development opportunities that are most effective for you as a teacher: Consider the needs and learning styles Present information in authentic contexts with direct links to classrooms and provide feedback while teachers try new strategies in their classrooms Allow time for reflection and experience Social in nature, allowing teachers to interact with colleagues and mentors Present practical step-by-step to solve a problem, not just new ideas that require complete transformation Focus on tools that teachers use for their own productivity Present information in a variety of formats Made at the teachers level. Same grade and content so they don ’t have to revise to use later Continue over time. Once isn ’t enough. Options Maximum Points Point Value Sample Verifications Criteria (goal related, completed) There are two types of PD. This is the formal kind, the kind you have to prove in order to renew your license. Does anybody know how many hours they need to renew? The system is different in GA. A college course, for example, is 3 points there, and you need 10 points every 6 or 7 years. There is also informal PD- reading books and journals, attending teacher collaboration meetings, etc. In GA, you need 20 hours of this kind per year (almost anything counts), and you don ’t have to prove it- just provide documentation of what you did.
