The Pennsylvania Inspired Leadership (PIL) Program is a statewide, standards-based continuing professional education program for school and system leaders. The comprehensive, cohort-based program is focused on developing the capacity of leaders to improve student achievement.

Act 45 amended Act 48 for school leaders in certain school board approved positions. If you are officially board approved in one of the positions listed below, you are required to earn 180 professional development hours in a five year period by participating in PIL-approved events. As before, you still must earn 180 continuing professional education hours within the five-year cycle. But now the hours must be Act 48 PIL hours. You can only earn Act 48 PIL hours by completing courses offered by PA Inspired Leadership or by completing PDE-approved courses offered by other providers.

  • Principal
  • Assistant or Vice Principal
  • Superintendent
