STPDL Funding for 2019-2020
All information regarding the Chairs of each Superintendency, applications and guidelines are posted below.
Short Term Professional Development Leave Fund (STPDL) is money negotiated into the Collective Agreement for elementary teachers to fund professional development. The Peel District School Board has an STPDL committee and chair in each of its (13) Superintendencies plus the Board Office. The committees meet on a monthly basis to process applications.
STPDL can fund up to $350 for conference registration, transportation, and accommodation, and can fund up to 2 days for supply coverage Easy Connect (Code 67) while funds are available.
STPDL Guidelines, application forms and the Chairs of the Superintendencies are posted at the bottom of this page.
**Please note the protocol changes to Out of Country Activities**
Applications for ALL out of country activities must be approved by the PDSB Associate Director, Poleen Grewal.
Once your STPDL application is approved by your Principal/Supervisor, please then forward your application form to the Associate Director (courier: Poleen Grewal, Director’s Office, CBO). The Associate Director will process and then return your application to you.
If approved by the Associate Director, please then forward to STPDL for consideration. Please allow a sufficient amount of time for approval from the Associate Director. All applications must still be received by STPDL prior to the start of the activity.
The following Superintendencies (Jaiswal, McCuthcheon and Teachers without Schools) report that funds have been fully allocated for the time period indicated (i.e., funding is exhausted) and therefore these STPDL committees will no longer consider member applications for this time period.
All other applications are still being accepted by STPDL committees.
Members from a Superintendency where funds have been fully allocated may apply to PETL for Conference Funding directly, noting their Superintendency, without the need to apply to STPDL first.
