2022-23 Teacher Development Fund Guidelines


Individual Funding Application Form

Group Funding Application Form

Expense Claim Form (to be completed after the PD activity and the pre-approval)

Remember to include proof of attendance (ie, name tag for in person or screenshot of a session for online) or confirmation of completion (ie, a letter from instructor, final grade, certificate). Claims will not be processed without one of these items.

Keep in mind that although you were approved for an amount does not ensure that you will be reimbursed for the whole amount. In most cases, the application is an estimate of costs and reimbursement is based on actual eligible costs.
