Guidelines for Conferences Funded out of Title I, Title II-A, NSLA and Professional Development Funds
Appropriate forms must be submitted to the Office of Federal Programs/Professional Development four weeks prior to conference with the principal’s signature. The Office of Federal Programs/Professional Development will forward the forms to the appropriate Deputy Superintendent for approval. Required forms:
- ACSIP Expenditure Checklist
- Leave Form
- Travel Approval Request Form
- Conference Registration Form
After receiving approval with appropriate signatures (Principal, Office of Federal Programs/PD, Deputy Superintendent) to attend the conference, school staff will:
- Create an on-line purchase requisition for payment of registration
- Scan all approved supporting documents (ACSIP Expenditure Checklist, Leave, Travel Approval Request, Conference Registration form) to the school’s PO.
When submitting the Out-Of-District Travel Final Expense Report form, include copies of the approved Travel Approval Request Form, Leave Form, and Conference Registration form/agenda with all required signatures. Per diem is not paid for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner for travel that does not require an overnight stay. The Out-Of-District Travel Final Expense Report must be submitted within 10 days of return to the Office of Federal Programs/Professional Development. The Office of Federal Programs/Professional Development will NOT be responsible for payment for conferences that are not pre-approved using the appropriate forms and following procedure. The school or individual attending will be responsible for payment.
