This monograph offers information and resources to help school districts build the capacity to transform professional development. Part 1, "Ohio's Professional Development System," discusses the transformation of professional development in Ohio and explains what professional development is. Part 2, "Requirements and Responsibilities," discusses Senate Bill 230, which required the establishment of local professional development committees (LPDCs), describes requirements in Ohio's Teacher Education and Licensure Standards, and examines responsibilities of the Ohio Department of Education, the local board of education, the LPDC, and the educator. Part 3, "Suggested Guidelines for Establishing LPDCs," discusses the plan of operation, the individual professional development plan, and the appeal process. Part 4, "Requirements for Renewing Certificates and Transitioning to Licenses," discusses renewing a provisional or professional certificate, transition to a license, substitute licenses, people who are not employed in schools, Continuing Education Units, and professional development providers. Eight appendixes include pilot projects; National Staff Development Council standards; transition guidelines; a sample reciprocity form; questions and answers; a professional development reading list; resources; and a list of administrator competency areas.
