Course Reimbursement Information for DTU members
Course reimbursement information can be found in detail in the Dover Teachers' Union Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Below is a summary of the benefit.  
Course reimbursement for DTU members is divided into up to 4 rounds (8/1-9/1, 10/1-11/1, 1/1-2/1, and 4/1-5/1).  There is $70,000 allocated for all DTU members and when the funds are exhausted, the rounds stop.  In past years, there have typically been 2 or 3 rounds with partial reimbursement for the 4th round.  Classes need to be taken starting September 1 and end by August 31 of the following year.  Only 1 class can be requested per round and the class can occur at anytime during the year including the summer.  
Process for requesting approval:  Submit a form for course reimbursement (found under Employee Forms on this website) and ask your supervisor to approve.  After the form has been completed, send to the SAU office for approval by the Superintendent.  This can be done anytime during the round, although the completed forms must be received by the 
SAU no later than the last day of the round.  After all requests are reviewed within a few days after the last day of the round, you will receive written confirmation of your status and the amount for which you have been approved.  Fees and other costs are not reimbursable....only graduate credits are able to be reimbursed.
