The Judy Craig Professional Development Award (JCPDA)
LD Edmonton is pleased to announce this award is open to all teachers, educational assistants, and those professionals directly involved with instruction and programming for students with learning disabilities or related learning disorders. The purpose of the award is to encourage and support the development of both knowledge and expertise of professional practitioners. Only those professionals and paraprofessionals working in the Edmonton area are eligible to apply (EPSB, ECS, Elk Island, St. Albert Catholic and Protestant).
Two awards will be offered on an annual basis, and given to the nominees chosen by the Judy Craig Professional Development Award (JCPDA) Selection Committee, as established by the current Board of Directors of the Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta - Edmonton Chapter (LDEdmonton).
The application form is to be submitted by an individual or group knowledgeable about the work being done by the nominee, who has given their permission for the nomination submission. The nominee must be currently employed by an institution providing education or health services, with professional/paraprofessional certification in place. It is preferable that the applicant has been active in the field for at least two years prior to the nomination for the JCPDA.
The stipend from the JCPDA Endowment Fund must be used to pay for specific professional resources, for relevant conference registration, or for a unique event that would result in increased knowledge or skill related to learning disabilities. In all cases, the rationale for spending the funds would be described on the application, as well as the expected results from the professional development experience. Any subsequent change as to expenditure of funds would need to be approved by the JCPDA Selection Committee.
The monies ($500.00 each) would be available to the successful candidates by June 30 of each year.
