Being a Professional Development Plan (PDP) team member is a unique opportunity to provide collaborative, professional, support of new teachers, administrators, and pupil services professionals in Wisconsin’s schools. Participating on a PDP team not only contributes to the professional growth of the educator, it can also enhance the professional development and professional practice of the team member.
PDP Team Training - Refresher Course For Previously Trained Team Members
The status for Educators who were previously trained to be a PDP team member expired on June 30, 2016. To renew the certification for another five years, an online refresher course is required.

PDP Team Training - IHE Representatives
Educators who are interested in serving as a PDP team member as an IHE Representative must obtain a letter of designation from a Wisconsin College or University. Educators will be added to the list of active PDP team members as an IHE representative after completing the new team member training above and the DPI receiving the signed letter of designation. A letter template can be found at https://dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/imce/tepdl/ihepdpdesig.doc.
The following refresher materials may be useful for PDP team members in reviewing a PDP:
- PDP Goal Approval – The top ten things to remember when reviewing initial educators’ PDPs for goal approval.
- PDP Verification – The top ten things to remember when reviewing initial educators’ PDP for verification.
Electronic PDP Verification
As of September 1, 2012, all educators are required to submit their PDP Verification data to DPI via an electronic service provider (e.g. QEI, WECAN-PDP, WIPDP). The PDP may be created outside the electronic PDP system.
While a team member who is verifying a completed PDP cannot override the decision on a previously-approved goal, they must still review the Goal Approval Component (Step I and II) at the time of PDP Verification. Both the QEI and WECAN-PDP systems will have a check box related to Step I and II, where the team member will be required to answer Yes or No. Example:“I have read steps I and II of this educator’s PDP.”
