You must submit your PDU documentation to an Oregon Educators Professional Development Certification partnering Education Service District. You may do this by going to the orepdc.k12.or.us website and following the simple instructions. You will be asked for demographic information and to pay a $25 processing fee. Once this is complete you will receive an e-mail with where to send your materials. Materials may be sent via mail, e-mail, or fax.
The ESDs will electronically verify your PDU documentation.
