PDCE Exchange Credit

Exchange Credits for the 2023-24 School Year


As a learning organization, Duncanville ISD commits to continuous learning and professional growth of all staff and has included two days (12 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 submitted between June 1, 2023, and March 22, 2024 to exchange May 29 & 30, 2024 as trade-out days. All Paraprofessional Exchange Day credits (PED) must be earned between April 1 and May 13, 2024 by campus based paraprofessional staff to exchange May 29 & 30, 2024 as trade-out days.

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 these guidelines for a full description of Professional Development Credit Equivalency.
