PGPs require advance planning and specific forms. Users have requested additional guidance. Find both here.
- PESB form 1697 – PGP template for certification renewal (document) – to be used by all certified educators renewing a certificate via professional growth plans. An individual holding multiple certificates does not need to complete separate PGPs for each certificate held. One PGP counts towards renewal requirements for all certificates held.
- Form 1128-8-ER annual PGP verification (document) – to be used to verify completion of annual professional growth plans to document continuing education credit hours (clock hours) and PGP equivalency. This verification form may be used by school districts to determine eligibility for application to the salary schedule.
- PGP template for educator preparation program completion (document)– to be used by candidates for program completion requirements. This form is similar to the template used for certification renewal so that candidates will be familiar with it upon entering the educator workforce.
- Why PGPs? (document) – a one-page flyer for educators on the PGP process.
