General Membership Meeting Notice:

Please join us for our last formal General Membership Meeting of the School Year on Tuesday, June 23 at 4:30 PM.  Following our meeting we will host an Open House and serve refreshments. You can also deliver your application for the Professional Growth Partnership.  More on that below.

Professional Growth Partnership

The Professional Growth Partnership allowance for SY 14-15 is $750.00.  The partnership is prorated by month for the portion of the year an individual occupies a CASA Position.  Applications and receipts received by our office by June 15th will ensure the reimbursement is mailed the first week in July For applications and receipts received between June 16 and June 30, reimbursements will be mailed during the summer.   The Partnership is intended to support individual and collaborative professional development programs that are required by or consistent with the School District’s Professional Education Plan in compliance with the requirements of Act 48 and Act 45. These funds may also be used for tools that will permit you be more efficient in your job.  These funds are not intended to buy supplies, software or hardware for your school.  The form has been updated yet and is very similar to last year. PGP 2015 forms can be found under "Shared Documents" on this website.

We want to avoid any conflict regarding these funds with the partnership trustees so please do not purchase multiple items of the same type. Cameras, video cameras, stereos or televisions are not permitted.  Be cognizant that the purchase of a smart phone is permissible but it is the device that can be reimbursed not the service (many cell phone providers are financing the phone along with the plan so receipts are insufficient for reimbursement).  Please purchase the device and avoid the finance option.  If you have questions, please call our office before you make a purchase.
