For Texas districts only.
The My Portfolio tool in Strive allows teachers and staff to monitor professional development credits and hours tied to their specific certifications. If someone has a provisional certification that requires submitting a number of professional development hours over time, the My Portfolio system will help monitor these credits and create a report that can be submitted to the certification agency if needed.
