PI-34 Information

 What is PI-34?
PI-34 is the  Wisconsin Administrative Code for Teacher Education Program Approval and Licensing, restructured teacher education, educator licenses, and professional development for Wisconsin educators. The system is based on Wisconsin Educator Standards with demonstrated knowledge, skills, and dispositions for teaching, pupil services, and administration. Initial licensing is based on an educator’s successful performance as measured against these standards.

What does it mean to be a PDP Trained Team Member?

The Professional Development Plan (PDP) is a process for the renewal of an educator's license based on planned professional growth and evidence of the impact of that growth on student learning.

There are 6 main steps in writing and completing a PDP:

  1. Reflection.
  2. Writing the plan.
  3. (For Initial Educators) Goal approval by PDP Team.
  4. Annual review of the plan.
  5. Documentation of the completed plan.
  6. Verification by PDP Team.

The following components are included in a PDP:

  1. Description of school and teaching, administrative, or pupil services situation.
  2. Description of goal to be addressed.
  3. Rationale for the goal.
  4. Plan for assessing and documenting the goal.
  5. Plan to meet the goal: objectives, activities, timeline, and collaboration.
  6. 3-5 pieces of evidence that document professional growth and its impact on student learning.

The PDP must focus on the development in 2 or more of the Wisconsin Educator Standards.

Successful completion of a PDP entails significant planning and a demanding schedule for the completion of activities and the generation of substantive evidence that would lead to the verification of the plan.
