Regional Support Team

The Regional Local Professional Development Committee (LPDC) Support Team was established in 2005 to facilitate transition to a standards-based professional development state system, specifically to:

  • Organize and hold informational meetings for LPDC members in their assigned areas;
  • Work cooperatively with Ohio stakeholders to develop tools and strategies for effectively implementing the Ohio Professional Development Standards across the state; and
  • Develop standards-based criteria for LPDCs to use to evaluate Individual Professional Development Plans (IPDPs).

Regional Support Team members may cover more than one region. Scroll down to locate the contact information for the Regional LPDC Support Team members serving your region.
