PD 68 Policy Revision

  1. 1. Professional Development 68<br />What’s new in PD Policy?<br />
  2. 2. The BEST thing!<br />We now have a THREE YEAR PLAN! <br />
  3. 3. Three Year Plan?<br />Why is that a good thing?<br />
  4. 4. The Three Year Plan<br />You can “save” your PD funds to go to a big event.<br />You can PLAN forward to develop strategies for professional growth that fit your individual needs.<br />
  5. 5. The Three Year Plan<br />How does the plan work?<br />
  6. 6. The Three Year Plan<br /> *Note: all funding is subject to availability.<br />
  7. 7. The Three Year Plan<br />What’s the supplemental fund?<br />
  8. 8. Supplemental Fund<br /> Unused PD funds will be put into a supplemental fund that teachers can apply to on a first come, first serve basis up to $300 for workshops (not resources or fees) once their individual funds are exhausted.<br />
  9. 9. The Three Year Plan<br />How do I apply?<br />
  10. 10. To Apply for Funding<br /> Check with your school PD rep for forms or go to www.bctf.ca/local68/pd to get the application forms. <br />
  11. 11. The Three Year Plan<br /> Will we still be able to share our individual funds with others? <br />
  12. 12. Can I share funds with a colleague?<br /> No. We have developed a system where we all have the same access to unused funds (supplemental funds).<br />
  13. 13. The Three Year Plan<br />But can we pool funds as a staff? <br />
  14. 14. Can we pool funds as a staff?<br />If individual teachers on your staff wanted to contribute for a presenter, they may. This is simply another way to get PD: it comes to you instead of you going to it!<br />NOTE: We honour teacher autonomy. We accept that one individual on staff might not wish to contribute, but will prefer to learn differently. <br />
  15. 15. The Three Year Plan<br />Will we still be able to apply for summer funds?<br />
  16. 16. Summer Funds<br /> We no longer have summer funds. Rather than redistribute unused funds each year, each member can retain funds for three years. However,members can still use their individual funds for summer PD. <br />
  17. 17. The Three Year Plan<br /> What if I don’t use my funds within the three years?<br />
  18. 18. Unused Individual Funds<br />After three years, unused funds will be redistributed to our community through the supplemental funds.<br />After three years, you will begin a new “three year plan.” <br />
  19. 19. More Questions?<br />Call the NDTA office – 250.756.1237 or email ndta@shaw.ca OR pd68@bctf.ca<br />
