ARE YOU LOOKING TO GET SOME PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT BOOKS?

We are thrilled to be able to share the news that the STA executive passed a motion at our executive meeting to allow our members to be able to put more of their Pro-D funds towards professional books. 
“Move that we increase the Pro-D book allowance to $250 with the stipulation that any books over $100 must come from the pre-approved book list until May 31, 2021” 
 
Here is what you need to know: 

  • The first $100 can be spent on books other than the pre-approved list as long as they meet all applicable STA policy and the BCTF Pro-D lens, although all $250 can be spent on pre-approved books. 

If one or more of your books has been denied you may reapply.
