PDP's are not going away. They are in PI 34, and there are no plans to remove the PDP from PI 34. However, PI 34 does allow districts to submit for the State Superintendent's approval a locally developed license renewal process. Some districts have expressed interest in creating a renewal process that would include the professional development work in the Educator Effectiveness system. DPI is currently working with several districts who expressed interest to Katie Rainey as a kind of pilot. The plan is to see how the renewal process goes with these districts with 2017 renewals and then report out what seemed to work well and what might need to be changed.
