All LPDC activities are done through the employee HR Kiosk under the IPDP tab.

  • Any amount of ceus/ contact hours/ graduate credit hours over and beyond the required amount for renewal cannot be “carried over” to your new license.
    • 180 hours =18 ceus =6 semester hours
  • All license renewal application and payments are to be completed online through your SAFE account on ODE’s website.Choose the Stark County ESC LPDC IRN 014473 when prompted.

    • Select NONE for supervisor
    • Select the FINAL APPROVAL button
  • AFTER receiving notification from ODE that your license has been renewed- you MUST ARCHIVE your old IPDP and CREATE a new one for your next renewal cycle.
