Professional Growth Funds

Professional Growth Funds are a negotiated benefit for Jefferson County educators. These funds are provided for teacher applicants who desire to attend professional and instructional conferences. The administration of professional growth funds is in accordance with Article 15-2 of the JCEA/JCPS Master Agreement.

To maximize the money available, the committee will fund conferences according to the following priorities: release days will be funded first, registration second, and travel last. As you consider attending professional conferences and applying for funding through Professional Growth Funds, please keep the budget and funding priorities in mind.

Stress Management
The first step in managing stress is to identify our own stress signals. Each person's body responds differently. Some of us experience physical symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, or muscle tightness. Others experience anxiety, forgetfulness, depression, irritability, or changes in sleep or eating patterns.
