How to apply for ILT Funds for a conference, workshop, or writing time:
Steps2017-18 Meeting Dates
Step 1: If you need a sub: Use the ILT committee form to request funding for a substitute teacher

ILT Funds Request  
ILT: 9/17, 10/8, 11/12, 1/14, 2/11, 4/15, 5/20
Step 2: For conference/workshop registration fees and additional costs, apply to the District Professional Development Fund (PDF).

Professional Development Fund Request
PDF: 9/28, 10/29, 11/27, 1/30, 2/22, 3/21, 4/26, 5/23
Step 3: Once approved by both the ILT and PDF, teachers should submit for the time off and request a substitute.

Teachers enter the absence through Skyward as Professional Development  and select "sub needed". This will automatically navigate you to Frontline to enter your substitute request.


Once in Frontline, describe the activity and list ILT committee as the budget/person responsible in the "Notes to Administrators" section.
*Note: This replaces need for the Professional Absence Request form.
Step 4: Follow additional steps on the Professional Development Fund link to register. 
Read this important 'Teacher Relicensure Law' information.

  • Requests related to building initiative will not count towards the two day total.
  • 10% of the budget may be used for staff development for head coaches (applies to staff in the building only)
