Professional Learning Reimbursements

Members can apply for a $100 AQ course reimbursement by submitting proof of enrollment and receipt of payment to our president for AQ courses. Additionally, the Local has created a Book Fund so members may purchase an educational resource book and receive a $50 reimbursement once per year.  In order to receive this funding, your chosen resource must be pre-approved (sorry no teacher-pay-teacher stuff).  Please email the president, with your name, title of resource, and email address.  After approval, and upon submission of a copy of an official receipt, a cheque will be issued.

ROE request form posted

Occasional teachers who require a record of employment (ROE) for EI over Summer Break must complete a google form that can be found on the SmartFind homepage after you log-in, or RCDSB Site under Board-> Business Services-> Payroll, then scroll down to Forms and use ROE Request Form Summer 2019

( is a quick link.

(This google form process will ensure that anyone requiring a ROE gets one sent directly digitally, but still be sure to file ASAP after your last day worked!)

ETFO also created A Member’s Guide to Employment Insurance, a comprehensive read for all members including OTs in March of 2018

New online Workplace Violent Incident Reporting form

As you are probably aware, you are required to report violent incidents that cause or could cause physical injury, whether the force is actual, attempted or threatened. Despite mitigating circumstances (age, special needs, presence of an IEP) you still must report.

If you are the victim of a violent incident (even if it was an attempt or a threat) you must fill out this report. Classroom evacuations are also considered violent incidents and so should be reported using the new online step by step reporting form instructions accessed to RCDSB.
