  • plan and deliver professional development and training
  • attend training events
  • develop resources
  • participate in research activities related to the project
  • implement student learning projects.

Funding is allocated based on information supplied by each school on the number of days a teacher would be out of the school and on other expenses incurred (e.g. travel expenses, taxi, etc.).

A Memorandum of Understanding will be used to confirm agreements with schools and regions and outline requirements.
