Graduate Credit and Professional Development Points (PDPs)

Noncredit Option
Most of our events and trainings can be taken either for graduate credit or noncredit. If you opt to take one of our institutes, courses, or conferences for noncredit, you will receive a certificate of attendance which you can then turn into Professional Development Points (PDPs) in your school district.


Graduate Credit Option
If you opt to take one of our institutes, courses, or conferences for graduate credit, credits are awarded by Lesley University. In Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education states that 1 semester hour of graduate credit= 22.5 PDPs. If you teach outside of Massachusetts, please check with your state’s Department of Education for more information on graduate credits and PDPs.
