Professional Development Transcript/OTS Link
Professional employees of the Bensalem Township School District have two places where they can find records of the Act 48 hours they have earned. One place is the "Transcript" section of their personal account on the Online Training System (OTS) at http://staff.bensalemsd.org/ots/login.asp . This transcript will show a record of the Act 48 hours awarded by the Bensalem Township School District for participation in activities deemed acceptable by PDE. The other place to check records is in the Teacher Certification section of the PDE website ( http://www.pde.state.pa.us ). This record will not only include the hours awarded by the school district, but also will include hours for off-site sessions deemed acceptable by PDE. To access your PDE records you will need to know your seven-digit professional identification number assigned to you by PDE.
