IPDP - Individual Professional Development Plan

Can you tell me more about the IPDP process? 

Professional development points may be earned at three levels with this plan.  This new plan for licensure renewal was effective July 1, 2003.  All Kansas District educators are to use the IPDP plan.  Each educator must have a current IPDP on file at the District Office in order to receive in-service points.  You may update your plan at any time by mailing an update to: Kansas District LCMS, Educational Services, 1000 SW 10th Ave, Topeka, KS 66604-1104.

Included in the Roadmap are the required items to be on file (new plan and a copy of your Kansas teaching certificate), instructions to complete the plan, sample forms, and answers to commonly asked questions.
