The LPDC HANDBOOK contains complete information about the LPDC processes
and guidelines. It is reviewed and updated annually in August.
In October 2019 the LPDC approved the following guideline which is not included in the handbook: The LPDC recognizes that educators may acquire professional development from on-line providers (e.g. The Master Teacher, TeachME, Creative Teacher, ASCD) for purposes of license renewal. If the professional development provider does not provide transcript credit from an affiliated college/university, the LPDC will only accept a total of 50 contact hours/5 CEUs from these providers for purposes of license renewal.
