Once you have all of your professional development information added to your profile, it is time to connect your account to your center’s profile. Please note, this is a required step for TRS providers.
The practitioner dashboard includes:
This guide will go through the steps to connect to your center. You can also choose to grant access to your center director to view your individual professional development report and upload records into your profile on your behalf. Please note that center directors can only add information. They cannot edit or delete any older records.
Login to TECPDS and select “Manage Center Affiliations” on your dashboard.
Click the “Add a Center” button.
On the next screen, you’ll be able to search for the Center or Facility where you work. Find your center in the listing, then click the “Select” button and “Submit.”
Practitioners can authorize and un-authorize the Center Director from editing and/or viewing your information at any time. Click the “Authorize to View” and “Authorize to Edit” to change permissions for your Center Director’s access to your account.
For Texas Rising Star: Practitioners must select the “Authorize to View” option to enable TRS assessment scoring. Staff at a TRS provider do not need to select “Authorize to Edit” if they do not want their center director to add records to their account on their behalf.
Click the red trashcan button to de-connect for a center, and remove any access the center director has to view or edit your account. If you start working at a new center, be sure to de-connect from your prior center and connect to your new center.
Do you work at multiple centers? Follow these same steps to connect to all your centers.
