*** New DPPD Reporting Process Resources beginning July 1, 2020, when districts choose to allow DPPD to be used for recertification, they must enter it into the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS) as State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs). This process replaces individual educator entry and the requirement for districts to review and sign each educator's individual DPPD form.
After district coordinator submits SCECHs into MOECS a survey is automatically generated through MOECS after submission. Educator must complete SCECH Survey before SCECHs are awarded to educator. After survey completion, SCECHs will be recorded in the educator's professional learning account in MOCES.
You have 30 days after you attend the training to complete the MOCES Survey otherwise you may forfeit your SCECH credits
All of the websites and documents can be confusing. Hopefully, the following information will help clarify what each site or document represents and its purpose.
Staff Development Requirements
All certified staff are required to attend 5 days (30 hours) of staff development each school year. In addition, probationary teachers need to attend another 15 days (90 hours) within the first three years of employment.

This 2020-2021 school year, in August & September, all certified staff and paraprofessionals should have attended professional development days starting August 25, August 26, September 1 and 2, 2020.

Employee Web was setup for staff members to see their personal information, including certification and degrees, attendance, payroll history and tax information. This is also the site to enter your staff development activity. New certified staff that have less than three years teaching experience are required to enter any professional development in which they have participated by December 1 and May 2 of each school year. All of the above mentioned activities should be entered, as well as any other professional development workshops attended during the year. From this database, a report is generated for the State of Michigan REP to verify completion of the required professional development.
