Procedures for Planning & Implementing Model Schools Workshops •

All workshops should be set up to allow one person per computer.

If a workshop will include more than 15 attendees then there must be 2 trainers assigned to that workshop.

20% of the number of seats for a workshop must be held open for other participating Model School districts. The district requesting the workshop may include more members from their district if the participating Model School districts do not take up their twenty percent share 10 days prior to the workshop date.

The workshops must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to its planned date. Submission for a Model Schools workshop can be done by contacting the Model Schools Coordinator and will be entered in the ITD Professional Development Calendar: http://idt.cnyric.org.

Model Schools workshops should come as a result of the district’s staff development plan, Model Schools meeting, or any special needs that can be accomplished through the Model Schools program.

Districts wishing to hold a particular Model Schools Workshop can contact the Model Schools Coordinator for assistance.

All Model Schools workshops must have an outcome or assessment. Information about the outcome or assessment used within the workshop must be forwarded to Model Schools Coordinator. OCM BOCES holds the right to see physical evidence of reported outcome or assessment at any time.

All workshop attendees and trainers must complete the required forms for the class they are attending/teaching and submit them to the Model Schools Coordinator.

Due to SED audit procedures, Model Schools Program District/Building Liaisons should maintain their Model Schools financial records and budget. This will also help ensure that districts will keep their expenditures up to date.

OCM BOCES reserves the right to reject any submission for a Model Schools workshop if OCM BOCES feels that the preceding guidelines have not been adhered to or the workshop does not follow the Model Schools Program mission.

4


Workshop Forms There are a variety of forms that must be filled out by trainers, instructors, substitutes, and Administration regarding the Model Schools Program. Below is a list of the needed forms, all of which can be found on the Model Schools web site at http://itd.cnyric.org. The trainer is responsible for collecting these forms and submitting them to the appropriate person (either the district’s business manager or the Model Schools Coordinator). Model Schools Workshop Attendance Sheet Trainers should print out one copy for each day in which the workshop takes place. Participants should sign in when the workshop begins. The form will be collected by the trainer and returned at the end of the workshop to OCM BOCES where it will be kept on file. Districts inquiring about whether a staff member attended a particular workshop should contact the Model Schools Coordinator. Model Schools Teacher Stipend Employee Data Sheet Professional staff at BOCES activities can be paid as BOCES employees. This typically applies to summer sessions or others outside the school calendar. - All professional staff attending sessions must complete Federal and State W-4 forms. - The Model Schools hourly rate will be paid, and deductions for federal and state tax, FICA, and, where appropriate, retirement will be taken. - The district will be charged the cost of the stipend, FICA contribution, retirement contribution, unemployment compensation, worker's compensation and a 10% administrative fee. - All persons attending their first Model Schools workshop for each fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) MUST fill out this form. Once completed, this attendee will not be required to fill it out again this year unless they move or change a name. Completed forms should be collected and returned to the Model Schools Coordinator where they will be kept on file. Record of Time Worked Form Trainers will hand this form out during the course of the workshop. Workshop participants should fill out this form and return it to the trainer at the end of the workshop. Completed forms must be sent to the district’s business manager for signature and then sent to the Model Schools Coordinator. These are then processed in the BOCES business office and payments are made directly to the teacher. Please use Model Schools CoSer 563-6368-170. Substitute Teacher Reimbursement Form Shared activities coordinated through Model Schools are eligible for aid on expenditures for teacher substitutes. - Maximum reimbursement is $90.00/day - Workshops must be Model Schools events or coordinated by Model Schools. - District pays the substitute at the District rate and submits forms with all required information and signatures to the Model Schools Coordinator. - BOCES will pay the district the total amount, up to our maximum rate and will bill the district for payment through our normal budget adjustment process, ensuring aid for these expenses. 5


Model Schools Reimbursement Procedures Participating District’s Responsibilities All districts that are requesting stipend reimbursement under the Model Schools CoSer-563.020 “Shared Consultants/Workshops and Substitutes” must first have paid the Base Fee for participation in Model Schools- line 563.010 and committed money to the line item. It is the responsibility of the School District to make sure that there are sufficient funds in the RIC contract to pay for Model Schools stipend reimbursements. The line item 563.020 - “Shared Consultants/Workshops and Substitutes” of the contract contains the amount of money that the district agreed to for that fiscal year. Please Note Stipend reimbursement rates have been set as follows: Teachers and Substitute = Up to $15.00 per hour Trainers = $25.00 per hour (plus prep time when necessary) Districts are responsible for any payments beyond the above stated amounts. Teacher Reimbursement When attending a Model Schools authorized workshop for the first time in each fiscal year, all workshop attendees must fill out a “Model Schools Teacher Stipend Employee Data Sheet”. • • • • • •

This form will only need to be filled out once per year. However, if any of the supplied information changes then you will be required to resubmit this form. This form is kept on file at OCM BOCES and is used for tax purposes only. During an authorized Model Schools workshop all attendees must complete a “Record of Time Worked” form. The trainer will hand the form out during the workshop. This form must be completed and sent to the district’s business official. The signed copy will then be sent to the Model Schools Coordinator. If you do not fill out a form during the workshop please go to the Model Schools website (http://itd.cnyric.org), complete and send the form to the appropriate person.

Once the forms are received at BOCES the teacher can expect payment within 4-6 weeks. If the teacher does not receive payment within the above time period they should contact the Model Schools Coordinator.

6


Trainer Reimbursement Any district that wishes to use a teacher or outside trainer as a Model Schools instructor can pay this person through CoSer line 563.010, “Shared Consultants/Workshops and Substitutes”. Be sure that there are funds available for this expense in the CNYRIC contract. If there are no funds, your business manager can request an adjustment to the BOCES CoSer. Trainer Reimbursement Procedures • All Model Schools trainers must complete a “Record of Time Worked” form in order to get their stipend reimbursement for any workshop they present. • The trainer should make a note on the Record of Time Worked form that s/he was a trainer and is eligible for the trainer rate of $25/hour. • This should be sent to the Model Schools Coordinator either via internal BOCES mail or postal mail. The address is: Model Schools Coordinator CNYRIC 6075 E. Molloy Road Syracuse, NY 13221 Once OCM BOCES receives the Claim Form the trainer can expect payment within 4-6 weeks. If the trainer does not receive payment within the above time period s/he should contact the Model Schools Coordinator. Substitute Reimbursement If a district wishes to send teachers to a Model Schools workshop that occurs during the regular workday then the district can utilize its internal substitute system to allow the teacher(s) to attend and be reimbursed for the substitute through CoSer line 563.020. • • •

Model Schools does NOT pay teachers additional stipends if they attend Model Schools sponsored workshops during their normal workday. The district will pay the substitute for the coverage of that teacher for the Model Schools event. The district will need to submit a Substitute Reimbursement form to the Model Schools Coordinator. Make sure that the invoice sent to the CNYRIC has the words MODEL SCHOOLS, the name of the participant, and the name of the substitute written on it. Once received at the CNYRIC, the invoice will be processed and payment will be made back to the district.
