All teachers are required to maintain their own records of DPPD for certificate renewal.  Please follow the instructions provided here.  Teachers should complete this requirement yearly, even when they are not due for renewal.

As of May 14 2015, the District Provided Professional Development (DPPD) hours can be used to renew or advance the following certificates or licenses:

Professional Education Certificate

Occupational Education Certificate

School Administrator Certificate

School Counselor License

School Psychologist Certificate

Standard Teaching Certificate (previously Provisional Certificate)

Due to a recent reinterpretation of MCL 380.1527, the Office of Educator Excellence (OEE) has determined that the license or certificate is no longer relevant to the use of DPPD for certificate progression or renewal, however, as with all DPPD, the following conditions must be met and verified for the professional development to count as DPPD:

(a) The DPPD is appropriate to the grade level/s and endorsement area/s for which the educator is certified; and

(b) The school agrees to submit to all auditing and documentation requirements established by OPPS.

OEE Does not determine whether an educator's professional development may count as DPPD; the employing school district provides verification that it meets the criteria.  For this reason, before an educator uses the professional development for certificate/license progression or renewal, the employing school administrator/administration must have followed the steps indicated on the District Provided Professional Development (DPPD) Record for Certificate Renewal or Progression to a Professional Education Certificate:
