This is where you'll find answers to your most frequent questions regarding PDExpress (PDX). This page is still under development so be sure to check back for additional content. PDExpress is the software program the SPSD utilizes for certification/authorization renewal, district curriculum development opportunities (which may or may not be available for certification credit), as well as course reimbursement / third-party billing (through accounts payable) and payment for initial candidate mentors (through payroll) - it is not solely "certification" software.
Q. I wish to use my course for recertification work and I wish to be reimbursed for it (or be able to use third-party billing). What do I do?
A. You must submit the course for both certification pre-approval (My Pages, Out-of-District PD, Propose Out-of-District PD, Type: select your grade level for conference or workshop or course), and course reimbursement pre-approval (My Pages, Out-of-District PD, Propose Out-of-District PD, Type: K-12 Course Reimbursement). prior to the start of the course. Please click the "Course Reimbursement" tab of this blog for more specific course reimbursement instructions. There are additional steps involved with third-party billing.
