Professional Development Plan (PDP)
The Professional Development Plan (PDP) is a process for the renewal of an educator’s license based on planned professional growth and evidence of the impact of that growth on student learning. The PDP must be completed in addition to an educator's Educator Effectiveness Plan.
A documented completion of a PDP as verified by a PDP review team of three members is required in order to renew a Professional Educator license or advance from an Initial Educator to a Professional Educator license. The PDP Verification must be submitted through an electronic PDP service provider and received by the DPI as part of license application processing requirement.
Information regarding all components of the PDP can be found on the Wisconsin Department for Public Instruction's PDP Webpage.
Educators must submit their PDP Verification to the DPI upon completion of the PDP through one of these electronic service providers: Quality Educator Interactive (QEI) or WECAN PDP.
