This policy is designed to clarify what costs PCLS will incur when members of the school community travel to represent the school at outside events.
If a teacher or parent (transporting students) travels more than 15 miles one way to attend an event as a representative of our school, we will reimburse (via expense report) $0.50/mile.
If a teacher or student spends 5 hours or more (consecutively) at an event as a representative of our school, we will reimburse (via expense report) $10 per person for a meal. One parent per household, if providing transportation, is also eligible.
We will not reimburse if the school is providing food for the event.
In general, the principal, academic director and/or culture director should approve attendance at the event in advance. Expense reports should be approved as follows:
