The PD Coordinator Team is ready to assist you with all of the details of running a successful PD course for your building, district, or conference. We work with qualified K-12 content specialists (CPD instructors) to assist you with setting up accredited professional development courses that meet the needs of your building, district, or organization. To submit new courses for approval or to inform the CPD about a repeat course, please utilize the forms below.

PD credit requirements include a minimum of 15 student learning hours, led by a qualified content instructor, that produces a measurable Learning Application Product for each professional development credit.

Documents received by the CPD will be reviewed for approval by the appropriate university faculties. The PD Coordinator will contact the instructor to facilitate optimal course design and to notify of course approval. Requests for credit approval must be submitted prior to the start date of the course, preferably 2-4 weeks ahead of time.

Please do not advertise your course prior to receiving notification of course approval. The CPD recommends advertising your course following course approval and provides supplemental e-promotional material, which will be forwarded to the instructor.

Whether you're already running PD in your district and are looking for credit or have an idea for a new course, feel free to contact our PD Coordinator, Anna Miller, with any questions: or 208-467-8374.
