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.
