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. From your allotted funds you can spend up to $250 on tuition per school year.
All TTOCs and contracted teachers not covered under the head count (having a contract as of October 21) can access $300 in Pro-D Funds on a first come, first serve basis from the TTOC Calendar account as long as you have worked at least 2 days in the previous pay period. From your allotted funds you can spend up to $250 on tuition per school year.
Tuition Maximums & Timelines:
University courses/tuition: Members can apply for up to $250 per school year (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023) from the annual collective fund allotment, for credit and non-credit coursework. This includes any course, workshop, or program that is tax deductible.
Tuition courses that START before the end of June of each year can only be claimed within that Pro-D year (Pro-D Year: July 1, 20xx to June 30, 20xx).
Did you receive tuition last year between January and June 2022 (if you did not, the following paragraph does NOT apply to you)? Our Pro-D policy has changed since July 1, 2022 (The tuition maximum went from $500/school year to $250/school year). If you received tuition in the amount of $500 between January and June 2022, you will not be able to request tuition funds until 2023 (reimbursement for courses cannot exceed $500 PER CALENDAR YEAR for tax reasons). As we have reduced the maximum to $250, this situation will only effect members who would be submitting an additional tuition claim between July 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 who claimed tuition as stated above in 2022. The maximum reimbursement for 2022-2023 School Year is $250.
In order to be reimbursed for tuition, you need to provide a fee statement from your educational institution. Please see the example below of what is required.
