Frequently Asked Questions
I heard about tuition reimbursment. How does that work?
Reimbursement to teachers is available for tuition for college courses, registration fees for seminars and workshops, and course fees for in-service programs. Teachers may receive up to $300/year and request forms can be found in the Human Resources Office. For classes completed before September 1 of each year, requests must be submitted to the office of Human Resource by October 15. For classes or courses completed between Sept. 1 and Feb 15, requests must be submitted by April 15. Proof of completion (transcript) and payment (reciept) must also be included
I have been a teacher for13 years but I only got placed on step 6 when I started. Why is that?
Our current negotiated agreement with PEA allows for only 5 years of experience credit for teachers transferring into our District. The contract also allows a new teacher to petition the Superintendent for more years of credit. These petitions are looked at on a case by case basis. Teachers can only petition for additional years in the first year of employment with the District. Call Claire Soto at 719-549-7129 for more information.
