Professional Development Plan

Grantees should develop a professional development plan for afterschool teachers and provide the written plan to their PA Department of Education (PDE) program officer for approval. 21st CCLC funds cannot be used for non-sanctioned and/or non-approved conference expenses. There is no approval for workshops not applicable to afterschool programs.

  • Extra Learning Opportunities Conference
  • Pennsylvania Grantee Meeting
  • USDOE sponsored Summer Institute (when offered)
