(PDA) Professional Development Alternatives Online Modules
Professional Development Alternatives (PDA) Online Modules offer professional development that designed to assist educators with responding to instructional and behavioral needs of each learner to maximize achievement for all students. Many of the PDA modules support the re-certification requirement of 20 hours in teaching students with disabilities (Renewal Credit in Teaching Students with Disabilities 1012.585, F.S.), however, each school district or private school agency determines which modules satisfy the content requirement for their employees. FDLRS reports in-service credits to school districts and private school agencies through their approved Master In-service Plan (MIP) or its equivalent. It is the responsibility of educators who are not employed to ensure, prior to registration, which district or agency will submit their in-service credits to FLDOE.
With the approaching close of the 2018-2019 school year, the current, in-progress PDA modules are about to end.
