Customer Showcase

Archbishop Hoban High School

Archbishop Hoban High School is a private Catholic high school in Akron, Ohio, serving over 800 students. The school currently employs 60 teachers, counselors, and administrators. In 2017, in an effort to streamline the process of tracking professional development hours for licensed staff, the school sought to implement an online professional development tracking system.

Online PD Tracking is Saving Educators Valuable Time
Educators at the school are using the TeachPoint PD Tracking Solution to track PD hours associated with school-hosted PD events, faculty meetings, professional learning communities, and PD activities completed outside of the school. Tom Hottinger, Technology Integration Specialist, shared that with the TeachPoint Professional Development Tracking Solution, teachers no longer have to set up an appointment with a dedicated staff member to determine if they have enough hours for licensure renewal. The Local Professional Development Committee chairperson, while still in charge of licensure renewal for the school’s faculty and staff, no longer has to manually keep track of hours for each teacher.

“One of our goals was to put the teachers back in charge of their licensure renewal, and the TeachPoint PD Tracking Solution has certainly helped us achieve that,” shared Tom Hottinger, Technology Integration Specialist.
