The Professional Education Records Management System (PERMS) is the official professional development record for certified educators. All professional employees are responsible for the accuracy of Act 48 records in the PERMS system. Act 48 hours are uploaded to the PERMS system from CPE Tracker. Professional employees should check the PERMS system regularly to ensure the accuracy of data.
CPETracker is our local registration and professional development attendance system for all employees. Salisbury utilizes CPETracker for summer academy registration, tracking of choice hours, and uploading eligible activities to PDE. CPEtracker is also utilized in both IU 20 and 21.
