PD Hour Considerations for Mandated Trainings
Generally speaking, health-related, mandated training topics do not align with professional development purposes outlined in Section 218-45(h) of the School Code and do not count for professional development hours. However, if a provider can ensure content is robust enough to align to the criteria outlined below, professional development hours may be awarded. Topics must address student learning and school improvement to be used for professional development hours. Check if yes.
