Dear staff, part-time and full-time faculty:
Thank you for your interest in furthering your own professional development and contributing to the continuing improvement of our school. The Professional Development Committee meets monthly to review requests. Classified and other staff: please note that PFT funding by contract is limited to faculty; however, there may be grant or other funding available without that restriction, so please apply!
What is Funded
Depending on funds available and requests received, professional development funds may be awarded for the following:
- collaborative projects
- in-house training
- books, materials, supplies, software
- memberships, subscriptions
- conference registration, travel, registration, hotel accommodations, meals, and other related expenses
How to Apply
You can complete the professional development funding request application and it will be reviewed by the professional development committee at their soonest meeting (see our meeting schedule on our homepage). If you have questions, feel free to contact the Professional Development Committee Co-Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org:
Please note for in-state and out-of-state travel:
It is imperative to allow for proper processing time to have your funding request reviewed. Funding for in-state travel should be requested at least 50-60 days prior to the desired date of travel. Funding for out-of-state travel should be requested at least 60-80 days prior to the desired date of travel, as Board Policy 7400 requires that out-of-state travel be pre-approved by the Board of Trustees. No funding requests shall be approved retroactively.
