TRAVEL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS


  • Improved Definition of “Regular School District Business Travel” – The final regulations permit boards to adopt policies which allow for regular business travel without prior board approval. Regular business travel now includes in-state professional development programs that cost $150 or less per person per program. The regulations also provide that the $150 amount may be adjusted in future years for inflation. In the earlier draft, regular business travel had been limited to $100 per event, with no adjustment for inflation. See N.J.A.C. 6A:23A-1.2.

 

  • No More Cap on Number of Attendees for In-State Professional Development – The final regulations eliminate the cap on the number of persons permitted to attend in-state professional development programs without first receiving prior written approval from the executive county superintendent. Prior, written approval from the executive county superintendent is only required for in-state travel that costs more than $5,000 for a single event. See N.J.A.C. 6A:23A-5.9(c). For out-of-state events, the regulation now provides for prior written approval of the executive county superintendent for attendance of more than five persons or for out-of-state travel that exceeds $5,000 for a single event.
