Blanche Chester Teacher Advocate Award
The Blanche Chester Teacher Advocate Award is an honor bestowed upon an MTA member that demonstrates strong Bargaining Unit member advocacy at his or her site and throughout the Association.
All nominees are asked to complete an application and biographical statement. In addition, members are encouraged to submit supporting statements on behalf of nominees.
A committee comprised of past Blanche Chester Teacher Advocate Award recipients will select the winner of this year's award. The winner will be announced at the May 16 MTA Council Meeting. The winner will receive a plaque and $100 toward instructional supplies.
The deadline for Nominations is Friday, February 24, 2017.
MUSD has prepared a form for you to be able to turn in your receipts so they can process your reimbursement.
For the 2016-17 and 2017-18 fiscal years, school sites will receive an additional budget allocation to be used for said reimbursements. The additional allocations are specifically for the reimbursement of classroom teacher expenditures up to $200 per year and exclusively for instructional supplies. It’s the responsibility of the administrator at each school site to monitor and ensure compliance (eligibility of teachers, classroom supplies and maximum of funds).
Click here to access the fillable PDF form which the classroom teacher is required to submit to the site administrator when requesting reimbursement. This form will then be submitted to Finance for tracking and audit related purpose.
The Finance Department has notified administrators via email and has furnished a copy of this form. Questions can be referred to your site administrator.
