All educators should thoughtfully consider the goals they write on their Individual Professional Development Form (IPDP) taking into consideration:
- LPDC guidelines and procedures (see LPDC Handbook);
- a process of self assessment on their individual strengths and weaknesses;
- the priorities of their school/district;
- the needs of their job; and
- specific career goals.
All goals on the IPDP should be written as SMART Goals. See sample SMART Goals on this page for examples.
We strongly suggest that everyone should include one broad general goal on their IPDP. See sample SMART Goals on this page for an example.
All forms are a fillable forms. Please download to your computer to complete.)
