Professional Development Hours Tracking

This year, the NWA Branch provided pamphlets to allow self-tracking of professional development hours (PDHs) gained. Sign-in sheets were available in each room during the sessions. These sheets are available for review by the PELS board if necessary during a professional development audit. Please contact the NWA Branch at ascenwa@gmail.com if you need assistance with your PDHs, or to request documentation for an audit.
