The NWESD Professional Development Coordinating Council (PDCC) provides prior clock hour approval for proposed in-service programs designed to meet standards set forth in WAC 181-85-200. Clock Hour Services provides transcripts, evaluations, and official Washington state educator clock hour documentation for individuals and in-service program providers.
Individuals requesting clock hour assistance should visit the Clock Hours page.
In-service Proposal Process
NWESD accepts clock hour proposals online using the pdEnroller system. If you do not already have an account, you will need to create one.
To create or activate an account in pdEnroller:
- Go to https://pdenroller.org/welcome
- Follow the onboarding process
Submit a clock hour proposal:
The complete proposal must be received a minimum of ten full working days prior to the first day of the event. New proposals must be submitted for repeated events regardless of the event being approved in the past.
Events approved for clock hours must be a minimum of three hours and may be offered in half-hour increments. They may be held over a series of days. Meal times and breaks cannot be included when calculating the number of clock hours requested. Approval cannot be granted for routine staff meetings.
All course instructors must have professional experience on file. Presenter experience may be added in the presenter field of the proposal process. Check first and see if the presenter is already in the system. If so, the name will populate when typing. Click on the name and add. If name does not appear on left, click Create New and enter required information including a resume or summary of relevant job experience and education.
The NWESD PDCC will review your proposal to verify that Washington State in-service/professional development requirements are met. Upon approval of your event, a confirmation email will be sent to you along with the attendance sheet(s). Each event approved for clock hours is evaluated by clock hour attendees using the pdEnroller online clock hour evaluation.
