  • meet for a minimum of 2 hours at a time (exceptions include MT Teacher Learning Hub and conference breakout sessions)
  • occur outside the contract day/year
  • not be taken for college credit/lane changes,
  • be unpaid by the sponsoring agency, and
  • be reported to the district central office via email or district mail in a timely manner upon completion of each event.
