A group of teachers who are interested in studying professional material together may apply for funds from the professional book study budget to cover the cost of purchasing the material. These funds may be used to purchase either professional books or DVD's. Applications are available from your school PD representative. Applications cover the cost of books only. If teachers would like release time to complete their book study, they must apply for small study group funds separately. Funds for professional book studies are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
