Professional development expenditures must be aligned with the district needs and assessment and must be reasonable and necessary. Federal/State funds may be used to provide professional development/training/resources to teach/train on how to develop/align/design/map curriculum, assessments or DDMS.
All professional development expenditures funded by grants must have prior approval from building administrators and the Office of Curriculum and Instruction. Please do not hesitate to contact the Curriculum Office for guidance or questions (ext. 3033).

IMPORTANT - Employees attending out of district workshops/conferences funded from federal and/or state grants are expected to register themselves. Upon completion of the activity, it is the employee's responsibility to submit ALL the required documentation of 1) PD Approval; 2) Itemized Paid Receipt; and 3) Proof of Attendance in order to receive reimbursement.
IMPORTANT - Due to grant requirements: Teachers must use Edustaff personnel as their subs for absences and are no longer permitted to use retired teachers. Retired teachers can still be used for other absences such as personal day, sick day, etc.
If a retired teacher is used for a PD absence then the sub cost will be charged to your building/general fund and not grant funds.
