The Adena Local Professional Development Committee meets monthly to discuss and approve the professional development courses and activities that allow you to renew your license when the time comes.
Current members, who can be contacted with any questions regarding licensure renewal and professional development approval, are: Jackie Barnes, Beckie Boyle, Dianna Eiring, Michelle Jones, Craig Kerns, Lee Snyder, and Lisa Wayland.
We must remind you that it is the educator's responsibility to keep your license(s) up to date, as the district cannot legally issue a paycheck to an unlicensed employee. Keeping that in mind, the Adena LPDC attempts to assist educators with reminders of upcoming license expiration dates, extensive record keeping of approved professional development, and issuing CEU's for district inservices.

The Ohio Department of Education's website on Educator Licensure is a terrific resource for requirements and forms on Ohio teaching credentials. If you have questions about the licensure process, visit the website for answers.
