Beginning January 1, 2015, ISBE changed the rules about the activities for which school districts can issue PD Credits. Generally speaking, PD Credits can be issued for training activities through which educators gain new knowledge & skills to use in classrooms.
School district superintendents are given the authority to decide if PD Credit may be issued for training or other activities.
Independently, both our previous and current Superintendents have decided that curriculum work - writing down, adjusting, and sharing what happens in classrooms - does not fit ISBE’s definition of training. While a well-articulated curriculum is very important, PD Credit will not be issued for these activities.
