A message from NEA President Lily Eskelsen García
Our public schools are the place where we prepare the nation's young people to contribute to our society, economy and citizenry. Unfortunately, the recent nomination of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education marks the first time this office will be held by an anti-public education activist whose sole "qualification" for the job is the two decades she has spent attempting to dismantle, destabilize, and defund the American vision of public education.
That's why, together with the American Federation of Teachers, we're calling on Betsy DeVos and political leaders at every level to commit to a public education system that welcomes students of all backgrounds, identities, origins, and abilities.
Will you help us issue this call? Sign our open letter. Thank you for stepping up to protect public education, the bedrock of our democracy. And thanks for everything you do.
Lily Eskelsen García, NEA President
Student CTA – Response to the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election
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.
