Applying for Professional Development Funds
The DDHS Site Team’s purpose is to advance the school’s literacy goal(s) as stated in the School Improvement Plan through improved student learning and classroom instruction. Funds may be available for staff members who are helping implement these goals.
To apply for funding, submit this form found at the bottom of this page to your division chair. They will present your application at the next division chair meeting for a vote. Those who receive funds should expect to provide a follow-up report after using the funds.
