Registry

Becoming a member of the Alabama Pathways Professional Development Registry is simple!

 

At this time, only Enrollment Applications for individuals whose center is eligible to participate in Alabama Quality STARS will be processed and placed into the Alabama Pathways Professional Development Registry (PDR). If you have questions or need assistance with completing any of the Alabama Pathways forms, contact us via e-mail at help@alabamapathways.org or by phone at (251)473-1060.

 

Before You Get Started…

You must have an active, personal email address. This is how we will communicate with you. Do not use a work or shared email address. You can set up a free email account with Google, Outlook, Yahoo, and other email providers by visiting their websites.

Gather any necessary documentation, if applicable. There may be supporting documentation required along with your Enrollment Application. We encourage you to submit documentation of your highest level of education so that we can accurately place you on an Alabama Pathways Professional Development Lattice Level; however, this documentation is not always required by Alabama Quality STARS.

Refer to the Alabama Pathways PDR Enrollment and Documentation Requirements chart to determine what documentation is required at each STAR level before submitting your Enrollment Application. You may not need to submit anything!

 

Now you’re ready to apply!

After you’ve gathered any necessary documents (if applicable), you’ll need to make copies to mail with your paper application or scan them into digital files that can be uploaded with your online application. Keep in mind that the paperwork you mail to us will not be returned. Please do not send your original documents. The next steps are easy!

1. Fill out the online Enrollment Application or download the Enrollment Application to print and send in via mail.

2. Attach supporting documentation to your Enrollment Application (if applicable). If you are submitting an online application, you will upload your scanned documents to the digital application. If you are submitting a paper application via mail, you’ll need to attach copies of the supporting documentation to the application and send it to us as well.

Congratulations, you’re done!
