School PD Requirements in Utah
What professional development requirements does a school in Utah need to meet?
Administrative Rule R277-302 requires school districts and charter schools to provide professional learning opportunities to teachers that result in educators having the opportunity to receive a minimum of 20 license renewal points annually.

- Bullying, Cyber Bullying, Hazing, and Harassment training for students, staff, and volunteers.
