CESA 6 provides PI 34 license renewal support for private and public school educators, who are required to maintain a current license for employment.  CESA 6 supports Initial Educators and Professional Educators in creating Professional Development Plans (PDP) as a part of their license renewal responsibilities. 

Initial and Professional Educators will receive support related to understanding license renewal requirements, creating and implementing a PDP, and locating PDP review team members.

Wisconsin DPI - Trained Educators for PDP Teams

PDP Process Review and Writing Workshops

The CESA 6 Professional Development Plan (PDP) Process Review and Writing workshop is designed for educators who are in Year Two of their licensure cycle. Educators will be guided through a process to produce a plan that can lead to goal approval.

PDP Verification Workshops

Educators, who have had their goals approved and are writing Steps IV A and B, Reflection and Summary, will want to participate in the CESA 6 PDP Verification workshop.  We will assist you in making decisions on the required evidence piece so that your PDP will be ready for submission to a review team for final verification.
