LBPSB: Your school will have a PIC committee that approves professional development applications. The forms can be requested from the PIC chair or found on SSO under the Professional Development tab. The central PIC committee only meets once/month, so be sure to get your application in quickly! Questions can be directed to Lily Sacco at the board (422-3000 ext.32618 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Private: The process depends on the school but usually there are funds for this! See your Division Director / Principal and ask for permission. Usually, all requests are accommodated. Even if it is your first year teaching, you are eligible for funds for this, so don’t be afraid to ask.
