Local Professional Development Committee (LPDC)

  • The primary responsibility of the Local Professional Development Committee (LPDC) is to review educators’ Individual Professional Development Plans (IPDPs) and ensure that the identified goals and strategies are relevant to the needs of the district, the school, the students and the educator.
