Teacher Directed PD Grant
Teacher Directed PD Grant - teachers must complete this Google form
This is an application to use funds from the Teacher Directed Professional Development Grant. Each school is allotted a set amount annually for this grant. Fund distribution is at the discretion of the staff, PD Rep and admin in your school.
Reimbursement for expenses is sent to the school in the school's name, therefore you need approval from your admin before paying for expenses with your school credit card. NO CHEQUES WILL BE SENT TO AN INDIVIDUAL.
I want to attend the ECEC conference in April. I get permission from admin to leave Thursday at noon to travel. Admin tells me there is only money in the school budget to cover the registration fee. I talk to my school's PD Rep and then tell my admin there is still money in our school's Teacher Directed PD Grant from our ATA local. I apply for the grant in an amount to cover sub, hotel, meals and mileage. I am approved. I tell my admin that the amount was approved. I use my school credit card to pay for the registration fee. I then use my school credit card to book my accommodations. I save all receipts and provide a copy to my admin and keep a copy for claiming expenses. I claim expenses through the local and provide a copy of the claim to my admin so the school can pay me for mileage and meal expenses, also filling out any additional paperwork my school needs.
Only if the grant is paying for your sub: When I book my sub I will choose Rebillable - External and put ATA Local 6 Teacher Directed PD Grant in the comments. Then I will go to https://local6.teachers.ab.ca/Forms/Pages/Forms.aspx and fill out the Sub Rebill Form. Try this link for it: Sub Rebill Form
All expense forms need to be submitted within 6 weeks of the expense and before May 31, 2023
It is your responsibility to claim expenses so your school can be reimbursed. The online expense form can be filled out at https://local6.teachers.ab.ca/Forms/Pages/Forms.aspx . Receipts are required for registration and hotel.
