Act 48 - Option to Not Submit Act 48 Hours to PERMS for Certified Educators
Administrative users and Supervisors now have the option to NOT send Act 48 hours to PERMS. This feature may prove helpful in instances where a teacher has completed a training outside of the district and the provider of the professional development is submitting those earned hours to PERMS. If the teacher is reporting the completion of that training within Comply, you would not want to submit additional hours to PERMS. This may also be helpful on request items that facilitate and track Flex Hours.
How does this work? Upon approval of a compliance item or request item, if a certified educator has a PPID number the approval modal will include a Submit to PERMS option (see screen grab below). By default, the Submit to PERMS toggle will be set to YES. If you DO NOT want to send the hours to PERMS, then before approving, change the Submit to PERMS toggle to No.
Note - In these instances, when the submission is approved, the Act 48 icon will remain grey denoting that the approver elected to NOT send hour to PERMS.
