COVID-19 Updates

    The District Travel Freeze will continue for the 23-24 school year. During this freeze a COVID 19 District Travel Freeze Exception Request Form-updated is required for any District Employee Travel/Conference Attendance and will require approval from the Office of the Deputy Superintendent. The completed Freeze Form is required in addition to the standard 10.12.1 process forms and approvals. Submit all 10.12.1 forms, the Transmittal Form and the Travel Freeze form to the Procurement Travel Desk. The Travel Desk will forward all travel requests to the Office of the Deputy Superintendent for approval. One Freeze form may be used for multiple travelers attending the same conference, however individual 10.12.1 Forms will still be required for each traveler.
