A plan submitted to the LPDC with your initial 5-year License and at each renewal. IPDP from previous district submitted to APS LPDC soon after start of school year or ASAP Approved IPDP must be on file with LPDC for work to count toward renewal (as per the Ohio Department of Education)
Continuing Education Units are awarded for participation in continuing education. 18 CEUs or 6 semester hours are needed for license renewal. A CEU is worth 1/3 of a semester hour. CEUs are counted to time spent, so attending a 3 hour activity would give you.3 CEUs. Take the time spent and move the decimal over one place. CEUs must be paid for in a timely manner, two weeks after the conclusion of the activity.
It is the educator’s own responsibility to stay abreast of licensure requirements, to monitor their individual licensure issuance and renewal and to abide by the governing LPDC requirements, and to maintain his or her own individual records. That makes the creation, approval, and execution of the IPDP of the highest importance.
