Educators Govern Their Professional Development Through LPDCs

Local Professional Development Committees are important legal entities through which educators govern their professional development for continuing licensure and practice in Ohio. OEA believes in, and strongly supports, the local professional development committee as integral to teaching quality, school improvement, and student success.

Educators work with their local professional development committee (LPDC) to create a plan for, and complete, learning activities that qualify them for certification/licensure renewal.

The LPDC sets and upholds the standards for learning that the educator must meet. These standards are intended to nurture the educator's career-long learning and set a standard for professional development in the school district. For this reason, the LPDC possesses great potential as a contributor to improved student achievement and school quality.

To facilitate certification/licensure renewal, the LPDC establishes and monitors the procedures, including the schedule, by which educators submit their individual professional development plans (IPDP) and evidence of learning for LPDC approval. Once educators have completed the work identified on their respective IPDPs, the LPDC forwards their applications for certification/licensure to the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).

OEA collaborates with ODE and professional organizations, to ensure that each LPDC is registered with ODE and that it maintains high standards of quality.
