The Halton Elementary Occasional Teachers’ Professional Learning Committee offers you an opportunity to purchase books that relate to your professional needs and interests AND receive a rebate of up to $50.00 once per school year.This now includes AQ course books. Requests for book subsidies will be considered up until May 15st or when allotted funds have been allocated. Reimbursement cheques will be mailed upon receipt and consideration of the information provided.
You are invited to purchase books at your favourite bookstore, open and print the PDF and complete all of the information. Send the completed form and the ORIGINAL RECEIPTS along with a stamped, self-addressed envelope to PL Chair, ETFO-HEOT Office, 3390 S. Service Rd, Suite 103, Burlington, Ontario, L7N 3J5.
The Halton Elementary Occasional Teacher Local is able to provide subsidy funding once per school year (to a maximum of $150 per person) for Halton Elementary Occasional Teachers to attend a Professional Learning Activity not offered by our own local. OTs may attend a Professional Learning Conference/Seminar related to their specific interest and needs. You may also attend Summer Academy courses with ETFO and claim the cost in September of the following year. As long as you are still on our OT Roster in September you qualify for this subsidy but it counts towards this year’s access to the subsidy.
AQ courses related to Elementary Education are now eligible! You must be an OT on our roster for at least 12 months prior to application, to qualify for AQ course coverage. You will complete the course and submit the cost, proof of attendance and passing grade. Send in the completed form and receive up to $150 towards the cost of the course.
As we have increased the funding this can be accessed for more than one event now BUT can only be processed once, in other words you would hand the paperwork for all events attended, in together. This is available up to May 15th or when allotted funds have been exhausted.
A copy of the CONFERENCE REGISTRATION FORM MUST accompany this application. Applicants will be notified if their request for subsidy funding is denied.
Open, print and complete the REQUEST FORM PDF below and submit it for consideration, with a copy of the event registration, original receipts (keep a copy for your records) and a self-addressed stamped envelope FOLLOWING THE EVENTS attended. Please note that only registration costs will be considered. Funds will only be reimbursed on proof of completion of the conference(attendance record or certificate if provided). Send the completed form and the ORIGINAL RECEIPTS along with a stamped, self-addressed envelope to PL Chair, ETFO-HEOT Office, 3390 South Service Rd, Suite 103, Burlington, Ontario, L7N 3J5.
