Recognizing our uniqueness as teachers in Catholic schools, we are an Association committed to the advancement of Catholic education.
As teacher advocates we provide professional services, support, protection and leadership.
29 years ago, in an act of gender-based violence, we lost 14 women at Ecole Polytechnique. Moving forward, we ask that you stand up against violence of any kind against women and girls. #rememberthe14
MATHEMATICS, PRIMARY & JUNIOR PART 1 AQ online is being offered in Waterloo Region exclusively for WCDSB teachers in January 2017. Participants will pay the standard OECTA $600 course fee at registration, but upon successful completion of the course, teachers are eligible for the $450 Ministry Math Subsidy (which is processed through the OECTA Provincial office). Along with the Ministry & OTF, the Board is once again offering an additional $150 subsidy for this MATHEMATICS, PRIMARY & JUNIOR PART 1 AQ course only (this payment is processed through WCDSB)!
Once the course has been successfully completed, the WCDSB subsidy is accessed through a request for reimbursement by:
* completing the WCDSB Expense Reimbursement Form (found on our forms page)
* including proof of completion from the faculty delivering this course
* including the original receipt (not a copy) showing payment for the course
The completed form and required documentation should then be sent to Alice Figueiredo at the Catholic Education Centre.
Reimbursement will be issued through the Payroll department as an automatic bank deposit.
