Professional Development for Staff

Tyrrell County Schools uses the following professional learning opportunities as the primary resources for Professional Development.  There are additional links to PD opportunities on the right.   *Be sure to get approval from your supervisor and HR before beginning any PD to make sure your request for CEUs will be granted upon completion.

Using the primary resources below, you should be able to sort or filter your search by content area, such as Literacy, General, Digital Learning, Etc. The NC Department of Public Instruction, requires  NC teachers to complete 8 CEUs or 80 hours of clock hours of professional development to renew a current or expired teaching license in NC.  A unit of renewal credit (CEU) is equal to 10 clock hours of professional development.

If you have completed  a PD course that does not offer a certificate of completion, you may request a certificate for CEU purposes by submitting this  form  Once you complete this form, you will receive a certificate of completion by email.  Please download this certificate and use Timekeeper to submit a request for CEUs. You will need to upload the certificate as a supporting document to your request in Timekeeper. 

*What follows are organizations offering professional learning for CEU credits. Presence on this list does not constitute an endorsement of the provider or content by NCDPI.
