Professional Learning

Professional Learning

Professional learning is an intensive and collaborative means of learning to earn or incorporatively maintain professional credentials such as academic degrees to formal coursework, conferences, and informal learning opportunities situated in practice.  Carteret County Public Schools is dedicated to providing effective, appropriate, and engaging professional learning for our educators. 

There are four types of professional learning opportunities:

School Activities - facilitated by a school employee or designee - participation required by the school supervisor - located at the school (e.g., School Grade Level Data Day,  Faculty Meeting, School Book Study)

District Activities - facilitated by a district employee or designee - participation required/requested by the district - located “in the county” (e.g., District Initiative Event)

Out-of-District Activities - participation required/requested “out of county” professional learning (e.g., NCDPI sponsored event/conference)

Independent Learning Activity - participation not required or employee requested professional learning (e.g., college course work, independent book study, online webinar) 

Professional learning activities can be in person, online, or recorded events that exceed 30 minutes in length.  

Prior approval is necessary for all activities to comply with state regulations, which require an LEA to determine the appropriateness of awarding renewal credit for a specific activity in advance.

Prior approvals help avoid misunderstandings regarding qualifying activities and reduce the possibility of an employee paying to enroll in an activity for which renewal credit will not be awarded. 


These forms will be updated and digitalized soon... until then here are the most used forms.


SD1 - Prior Approval for License Renewal/Certificate of Credit Form

SD2 - Request for Prior Approval PL Funding and Absence

SD4 - Locally Planned Staff Development Workshop (Request Form)
