- Once the Act 48 information has been verified by ESU, your hours/credits are sent to the PA Department of Education Records Management Site for final state approval. Please allow approximately six weeks for the entire review to take place.
- You may check on your Act 48 progress by visiting the Pennsylvania Department of Education Website and entering your Professional Personal ID number (there is a search function on the PDE website if you have misplaced your PID number).
If you participate in a pre-approved ESU workshop for ACT 48 hours, information will be collected from you at the workshop and ESU will submit the hours on your behalf to the PA Department of Education.
