Professional Growth Plan FAQ
Do I need to address all six standards as part of my four 1-year PGPs?
No, all six standards do not have to be addressed. Renewal of the administrator professional certificate is a job-embedded, contextualized professional development and certification process. As such, administrators are expected to address standards based on their needs assessment.
I want to apply my focused evaluation growth activities toward my PGP for this year? How do I do that?
Form 1697 PGP Template for Cert Renewal
- Insert the goals from your focused evaluation.
- Describe the rationale used to determine the goals.
- Align them with the career level standards for the appropriate
certificate you are renewing.
- List the activities you will engage in and the evidence that will show
progress toward the goals.
- After you have completed the activities, describe the evidence you
collected and how it relates to the activities.
- Reflect on the learning as a result of the activities.
- Review the plan and results of activities with a Washington certificated
educator (this may be the supervisor who oversaw your focused evaluation if
agreeable to both parties).
- Have the Washington certificated educator sign the PGP Form 1697.
- Understand: The intentional misrepresentation of a material fact in
this form subjects the certificate holder to revocation of his/her
certificate pursuant to chapter 180-85 WAC.
- Keep the signed PGP, and related documents, in your records until
one year after the expiration date of the applicable certificate.
