Guide to Continuing PDUs 12-2020
As of 12/1/2020, OREPDC will no longer accept new requests
to verify continuing PDUs. In its place, applicants will now be able to submit a PDU Log
and Certificate directly to TSPC. Please use the PDU Log and Certificate document/form
below and submit either through the Documents tab in your eLicensing account, or
email to firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE:
Please do not submit any supporting documentation with your Log and
Certificate. Upon review of your Log, our office will contact you if
clarification is needed.
NOTE: The following PDU Certificate allows for an electronic
signature, which may require configuration through Adobe. If you are unable to
create a digital signature, you may print the form, sign it, scan it, and
either upload to your eLicensing account or email as indicated above.
Fillable PDU Log/Certificate 12-2020
Do NOT use the Log and Certificate if:
1. Your district has already submitted a PEER form verifying your PDUs, or
2. You are submitting official transcripts to meet PDU requirements. Please refer to the PDU guide above for complete details.
If you have already submitted a PDU verification request to OREPDC: OREPDC will continue to process PDU verification requests that were submitted to them prior to 12/1/2020. Please visit https://orepdc.k12.or.us/ for further information, and contact OREPDC at: email@example.com if you have questions regarding the status of your request.
When Should I Apply to Renew?
It is recommended that you submit your application and fee approximately 90 days prior to the expiration date of your license.
If you submit your eLicensing application and renewal fee prior to or on your license expiration date, you will receive a 120-day grace period beginning the day after your license expires. This 120-day grace period gives you time to complete requirements and submit your PDUs. You may continue teach or substitute during the grace period.
