Unit Professional Development Funding

To assist our teachers in maintaining a current view of education, the Unit provides yearly subsidies of up to $350 for courses, conferences and in-service workshops. Applications for this subsidy are available to all teachers through their Staff Representative who maintains a copy in their Handbook. Briefly the procedure is:

  • Application is sent in a minimum of two weeks prior to the event. Part A of the application is sent in along with supporting course / conference information.
  • Application is returned within one week indicating approval or disapproval
  • Claim for reimbursement must be submitted within 90 days of completion of course / conference / in-service. Part B of application is completed and all proper receipts are included.
  • The subsidy will cover the cost of registration, accommodation, meals and transportation (at $0.48/kilometre if by personal transport) to a maximum of $350 per school year.
