Memorandum to: Directors of Education

Subject: UPDATE: Deeper Conversations on Implementing the Highly Skilled Workforce through Expanding Career Awareness – Submitting Expenses

Further to the March 9, 2017 memorandum to Directors of Education from Sandra Bickford and Patrick Keyes entitled Deeper Conversations on Implementing the Highly Skilled Workforce through Expanding Career Awareness – Submitting Expenses, we would like to clarify answers to a few questions related to submitting expenses that we have received from district school boards:

  • DSBs may customize the document Board Report – Deeper Conversations Expense Invoice to meet their needs by adding columns for Teacher Release Time and other categories as needed.
  • All submissions must comply with the Travel, Meal and Hospitality Expenses Directive for meal, mileage and accommodation rates.
  • DSBs are to submit one invoice to their Lead Board Administrator (see below) for their region, even if board and school teams attended sessions in their own and a neighbouring region.

Please note that school boards must submit original or truce copy of itemized receipts (where applicable), except for where meal allowances are used (see section 6.0 of the Travel, Meal and Hospitality Directive). This change became effective January 1, 2017.

Please feel free to contact us if you or your staff have any questions at stephen.kelly@ontario.ca or debra.cormier@ontario.ca.

Thank you,

Deb Cormier and Stephen Kelly
