If you participate in any workshop that is provided by the Steubenville City Schools, you do not need pre approval of the workshop. You need to fill out Form C (front side only) and send it to the LPDC Committee for approval. When you fill out Form C, make sure you send a copy of the certificate you received at the end of the workshop with all your other information or have the administrator in charge sign Form C. Keep all CEU papers until you renew.
In order to renew a current license, you must have successfully completed 6 semester hours of graduate credit or have 18 approved CEUs.
10 hours of professional development equals 1 CEU.
Every teacher renewing will receive 1 CEU Service Credit per year employed by Steubenville City Schools up to 5 Service Credits.
When you receive your license or certificate, a mandatory Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) is to be developed and submitted to your Local Professional Committee (LPDC). This plan should be submitted to the committee by the October meeting. If you renewed last year, you should have one on file.
All LPDC forms can be accessed on the SCS webpage.
Informational videos for renewing your license can be found on the ODE website (licensure section).
If you have any questions, feel free to contact any member of your LPDC or Jayme Browning (740) 283-3767, for assistance.
If you would like to meet with the entire committee, please contact the Board Office to schedule a meeting.
