Welcome to the Professional Development System Cost Analysis Tool

The Professional Development (PD) System Cost Analysis Tool helps states/territories understand current investments and target resources for PD systems and initiatives that result in a well-qualified early childhood and school-age workforce. The tool can help PD system funders analyze and align investments with the state/territory priorities, and forecast budget needs to advance workforce goals.

The Tool:

  • Generates data analyses related to workforce qualifications and PD investments
  • Defines and categorizes workforce investments
  • Estimates annual costs to advance the workforce from one level of qualification (educational milestone) towards the next
