Conferences – All Staff

Submit applications to attend any professional meeting to the EVS Director using form OP201 (meeting within New York City) or OP221 (meeting outside New York City) at least 5 weeks prior to the date of the event.  You must include supporting documentation as well as an agenda or brochure. 

Attendance at conferences, conventions and meetings that deal with topics relevant to the education of students who are blind and visually impaired is an important part of our staff development and you are encouraged to apply for and attend these meetings. If you submit appropriate documentation in a timely fashion and obtain the approval of the EVS Director, an absence to attend an educational conference will be treated as an excused absence with full pay and will not be deducted from your CAR.
