Who We Are

The Educational Services committee looks for opportunities to celebrate our members and provide opportunities to support our members in their professional development.  We have the annual learning plan generator to support with the board ALP requirement for setting goals for the school year, conference funding supplement to support learning that YOU want, and workshops/events on topics of interest for teachers. 

Conference Funding

Applications for

23-24 school year

are now open.

D16 T/OT is committed to the professional learning of our members.  Each year we offer funding for conferences, workshops and training.  The maximum amount paid per conference for 23-24 is $150/member.

1) View the conference funding guidelines, for more details, pre-approved conference list and exclusions.

2) Apply for funding   Please wait for approval before incurring any expense. 
Please anticipate up to two weeks for an approval.

3) Submit receipts for reimbursement

Note: If the conference is on a work day, you must connect with your administration to get approval to attend the conference and get an appropriate STAR code from your admin.

Anti-Racism and Equity Training Funding

Applications for
23-24 school year
are now open.

Through provincial OSSTF, members can apply for funding to support them in attending training, a workshop, conference of course in anti-racism and equity.  Funds are granted on a first-come, first-served basis and must be applied for.  The maximum amount per member is $400.

This year the process is different from last year and all applications and reimbursements are completed through provincial office.
Note: I received an email today (March 28th) that they have exhausted the funds for the 2023-2024 school year.  We sent about 40 emails last night to members who took AQs which may be eligible, and I think we broke their inbox.  If you take additional courses in the next school year, the funding resets July 1, 2024 but the application form is not available to us until early September when we receive the new Financial Handbook. 

1) View the Anti-racism and equity training funding guidelines, and process for more details.

2) Application form  Please wait for approval from the province before incurring any expense.

3) Instructions for reimbursement process are in the guidelines above.

Note: If the event is on a work day, you must connect with your administration to get approval to attend the event and get an appropriate STAR code from your admin.

ALP Generator

Each year, teachers must complete their Annual Learning Plan (ALP).  This is due by the end of October, unless this is your NTIP/TPA year.  OSSTF D16 T/OT Ed Services committee has created an ALP Generator to support you with this task.

Unsung Hero Award

The Educational Services Committee of District 16 T/OT annually recognizes the extraordinary services of devoted members with the Unsung Hero of York Awards.  Members should submit nomination forms to their Ed Services Rep or Branch President leading up to the spring deadline.  The Branch Executive selects the Unsung Hero Award Recipient and presents the award at the June staff meeting.
