CLASSROOM OBSERVATION OR LOA

All members attending events on instructional days need to complete an LOA form a minimum of 15 business days in advance.

It is STA policy that all teachers be replaced, including non-enrolling positions.

FUNDING:

  1. Headcount teachers may apply to the STA Pro-D Collective Fund up to a maximum of $600 per teacher every school year, in addition to a maximum of $150 in Pro-D books. These funds are approved on a first-come, first-served basis.
  2. Headcount teachers who avail themselves to a professional development workshop of classroom observation on an instructional day will be granted up to a 1.0 FTE TTOC credit per Pro-D school year.
  3. All TTOCs and contracted teachers not covered under the head count can access $300 for Pro-D on a first come, first served basis from the TTOC Calendar account. TTOCs must have worked a minimum of 2 days in the previous pay period to be eligible for funds.

Professional Development Leave

  1. Application must be made to the STA Professional Development Committee (PDC) using the latest leave form from the STA website at least 3 weeks prior to the date requested. Only members that have sufficient Pro-D funds to cover the entire costs of the leave will be approved.      
  2. Upon approval, the STA office will write a leave letter to district and copy the member.
  3. While the STA will be billed actual costs of the TTOC, internally a member’s account(s) are billed at an averaged fixed rate of Cat 5 Step 4.
    1. As of the 2022-2023 school year this number will be rounded down to:
      1. $340 for a full day
      1. $200 for a 0.6
      1. $170 for a 0.5
      1. $140 for a 0.4 (minimum allowed)
