PDCE Exchange Credit

Exchange Credits for the 2024-2025 School Year


As a learning organization, Duncanville ISD commits to continuous learning and professional growth of all staff and has included two days (24 credits) of paid professional learning throughout the campus professional staff calendar. Employees benefit from choosing an education that pertains to their content, skill level, and interests and the flexibility of format and time that works best for them.

All professional employees may earn Professional Development Credit Equivalency (PDCE) for participation in professional development activities approved by their supervisor. Please note that all PDCE credits must be earned between June 1, 2024, and May 2nd, 2025. All Paraprofessional Exchange Day credits can also be earned during this time frame. See below for the specific deadlines to earn exchange credits throughout the year:

  • Earn 6 exchange credits by December 2nd to exchange January 3rd, 2025
  • Earn 12 exchange credits by February 24th to exchange March 17th, 2025
  • Earn 24 exchange credits by May 2nd to exchange May 27th & 28th 2025

An Out-of-District Workshop request must be completed and approved by an administrator before an employee may attend any training sessions that occur outside of Duncanville ISD for PDCE credit. View this video for instructions on uploading proof of attendance for external professional development and training to the Edugence platform to receive PDCE or PED credit. (*Please note that proof of attendance and the out-of-district workshop request must be submitted.)

PDCE and PED credits may be earned only on the employees off- contract time, i.e., after the school day, Saturdays, or during the summer. If the professional development falls on a day when the employee is on contract, the employee will not receive PDCE.

Please refer to the PDCE and PED guidelines for a full description of exchange credits. Use the PDCE and PED trackers to record your progress throughout the year.
