2010-2011 AAPI Academic Conferences

IMPACT AAPI encourages its instructors and district staff to attend academic conferences and professional development events that better enable them to support our populations and grow the institution.

De Anza's Staff Development is able to reimburse travel expenses up to $1000 per school year. The grant, however, is able to reimburse up to $1200 per person per conference, up to 3 conferences per person. You can combine these 2 resources and decrease out of pocket expenses. For information about how you can be reimbursed for attending academic conferences, visit our reimbursements page.
