Trips and Visitors

You can request a Professional Development trip or visitor project at any time throughout the year. For trips and visitors, please make sure your event date is within 2-8 months of the date you posted the project.

We know events come with other expenses, and we’ve got you covered! You can include the following into your total project cost for the days of the event:

    • up to $30 per event day for food
    • up to $100 per event day for lodging
    • up to $150 per project for transportation

Food, lodging, and travel costs will likely be reimbursements. This means you or your school will provide payment up front and then request repayment by uploading an itemized receipt through your teacher page.
