Teacher Development Fund (TDF)

May 2, 2024

The Teacher Development Fund (TDF) is now accepting applications for PD activities during the summer!  

Please note that the Local office is closed June 28th and will re-open on August 26th. All applications for activities during July and August must be received no later than June 20th to be considered for funding.

Additionally, the 45-day deadline for expense claims is waived during the summer. All applications and expense claims received during the summer will be processed when the office re-opens.

Please ensure that you read through the Guidelines before applying!

Teacher Development Fund Guidelines

Highlights of some of the changes:

  • The two-year individual maximum is $2,800. (This is the second year of the two-year cycle and will re-set in the fall.)
  • The annual group maximum is $1,750 per group member to a total maximum of $8,750 per group. (A group is two or more members.)
  • Substitute teachers must have worked an average of two days for every month prior to the PD activity from date of activation.
  • We will not be accepting applications for activities that have occurred during the pause (September 11th through February 15th).
  • We will start accepting applications for activities in July and August on May 1st.
  •  There are no longer paper forms - we've moved to Google forms for the application and expense claim process. Links to the forms are embedded in the Guidelines document.
