Professional Learning Units

Rhode Island Public School Teachers

LEAs may approve professional learning activities for educators in one or more of the following categories:

  • Subject matter/content knowledge and skills
  • Pedagogical knowledge or pedagogical content knowledge and skills
  • Curriculum implementation knowledge and skills
  • Enhance educator effectiveness

An hour of approved professional learning equals one Professional Learning Unit (PLU). LEAs will verify in the Personnel Data Collection system that the educator has completed all required PLUs. RIDE will not collect individual PLU evidence, but educators should maintain their own records.

Check the RIDE license renewal webpage for more information.
