Overview

Overview

The twin goals of Curriculum Institute (CI) funding are to support:
  • collaborative learning opportunities and innovations that are above and beyond the standard professional preparation required to fulfill teaching assignments
  • the fulfillment of District/Board goals and WASC action plans
 
Information and applications for participation in the district's Curriculum Institute program for MVLA staff members can be found below.
Guidelines

Guidelines

Curriculum Institute applications that meet both goals will be prioritized. Further considerations will include:
  • impact beyond a single classroom
  • strength of the plan for applying or extending the funded learning
  • cost-effectiveness
  • the degree to which funded experiences cannot be obtained in any other manner
  • the number of applications submitted
 
Application Deadline Information
  • Curriculum Institute applications must be submitted at least two weeks before the requested event
  • It may take a two-week turnaround time for applications to be reviewed and approved/denied
  • You are encouraged to submit your CI application as soon as possible 
  • When appropriate, submit CI applications prior to early bird deadlines
 
Special Considerations for Summer 2022
  • Summer CI activities much occur between June 4 - August 10, 2022
  • Requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis and must align with CI Guidelines
  • On-Site CIs: CI will support up to 12 hours of collaboration time per person during the Summer of 2022
 
Approval Process
  • Submitting a CI application does not mean that the CI is approved. All CIs must be reviewed and approved by Ed Services in order to be deemed "approved"
  • All Team Participants listed on the CI application will be notified via email stating if the request has been approved or denied
  • Information on the next steps for DO pre-payment will be included in the approval emails sent to all participants listed on the application
  • Review the CI Payment Procedure (On-Site) and CI Reimbursement Procedure (Off-Site), linked below
 
Horizontal or Incentive Units
  • Do not fill out a CI application if you are applying for horizontal movement, units, or incentive pay
  • Staff cannot receive both units/incentive pay AND CI hourly pay (On-Site)/CI reimbursement (Off-Site)
  • Contact Amy Vargas if you have questions regarding units and/or incentive pay or the professional growth process
