Everyone MUST complete a Conference Request Claim form and obtain approval from your supervisor(s) BEFORE registering for/attending any Conference, Webinar/Virtual Seminar, External Workshop/Training, or Accredited Course outside the District. Even if you don’t anticipate asking for reimbursement, there are liability issues that could arise if SAC employees travel outside of the district without first obtaining the necessary approval.
Funding is on a first come first serve basis. Be sure to get your request in early in the academic school year. Please note that if you end up not attending the Professional Development activity, please notify the funding source to make the funds available to someone else.
If PD funding is denied, funds may be available through CTE, SEAP or through your division. Contact those areas for more information.
Professional Development Funding Eligibility
Conference, Webinar/Virtual Seminar, External Workshop/Training, or Accredited Course. For any other funded PD activities (i.e. speakers, memberships, etc.) not requiring a CRC form please contact the PD Office.

Obtain your supervisor's approval before requesting funding for a PD activity. Step 3 must be completed after your activity has concluded.
