Under previous PI 34, DPI licenses required/allowed educators to renew using a verified Professional Development Plan (PDP).  A PDP is a process for the renewal of an educator’s license based on planned professional growth and evidence of the impact of that growth on student learning.  There are currently no license types that allow renewal with PDP.  However, information about the PDP process is still available for historical and professional development purposes.

The PDP Verification must be submitted through an electronic PDP service provider and received by the DPI as part of license application processing requirement.  You may contact the following electronic PDP service provider to create and work on your PDP electronically. You must submit your PDP Verification to the DPI upon completion of your PDP through Quality Educator Interactive (QEI).

PDP Verification

Regardless of whether you have completed your PDP on paper or online, you are required to submit your PDP verification utilizing QEI.  If you are an Initial Educator completing your PDP on paper you must retain your goal approval signature form and this form must be made available to your PDP team at the time of PDP verification.  If you have verified your PDP on paper, use this page to complete your online verification:  Offline Verification
