PDP Team

****** We have experienced an overwhelming volume of phone calls and email these past few weeks seeking assistance with ELO and licensing. We will continue to work with educators who had reached out for assistance or started an application online prior to June 30th to be able to assist with technical issues that prevented application completion.  Applications from these educators who made a good faith effort to apply will be considered as having been made timely. ******

Initial educators select DPI-trained team members for goal approval and PDP verification. The team must include:

  • A peer (in the same license category as the educator’s PDP)
  • An administrator
  • An IHE representative

Professional educators select DPI-trained team members for PDP verification. The team will include 3 peers in the same license category as the educator’s PDP.

In order to serve on a PDP team, team members must:

  • successfully complete a DPI-proved PDP Team training
  • (As teaching peers) Hold a valid teaching license at Professional Educator level.
  • (As pupil services peers) Hold a valid pupil services license at the Professional Educator level.
  • (As administrator peers or as administrators serving on initial educators PDP) Hold a valid administrator license at the Initial or Professional Educator level.
  • (For IHE representative) Be affiliated with and designated by an IHE.

The lists of DPI-trained PDP team members are available in the following section.

Administrators on a PDP Team

School districts are required to “designate” a DPI-trained administrator to be available to serve as the administrator on the PDP team of an initial educator in that district. Initial educators may choose a DPI-trained administrator from outside their district. However, limitations may be imposed by the employing school district or a collective bargaining agreement.

Wis. Admin Code PI 34 does not specify whether or not the supervising administrator can serve as the administrator on the initial educator’s PDP team. However, it is important that the PDP process for license advancement and the district process for evaluating job performance be recognized as two separate processes.

Convening a PDP Team

There are varieties of ways to convene a PDP team:

  • Some districts assign PDP team members to their educators’ PDPs.
  • Educators may select and contact DPI-trained PDP team members from within their own districts.
  • Educators may select and contact DPI-trained PDP team members from anywhere in the state.
  • Educators who use an electronic PDP system can select DPI-trained PDP team members from within the electronic PDP system.

Interactions between an educator and the PDP team members can happen in person or through phone calls, emails, or an electronic PDP system.
