Tim Sheehan has approved this and will help make it happen. Per Tim, “The district can issue contact hours, which individuals can bundle with other similar trainings to use as PDPs (The minimum hours that DESE requires for us to issue PDPs is 10). In order to earn PD contact hours, you will have to complete one hour of additional independent work for each tech tool for which you received training.”

Once you have finished participating training sessions and have completed one hour of independent work for library resource, fill in this form to get credit toward PDPs: Link to Google Form for Earning PDPs for Library Resource Training
