We are pleased to invite all SFUSD educators represented by UESF to participate in additional Professional Development offered through the Quality Teacher and Education Act, more commonly known as the Prop A 2008 parcel tax or QTEA.
How many hours of QTEA PD do I get? All UESF certificated and classified educators receive a total of eighteen (18) hours of paid professional development for the 2017-18 SY. See complete list of qualifying educators here. Hours do not roll over and must be used by the last payroll deadline of the school year.
What types of PD can I attend? All SFUSD teachers and paraeducators can use their hours to attend professional development which falls outside of your normal workday schedule and is not already funded by the site or department. This includes site-based professional development, central-sponsored professional development, and external (non-SFUSD) professional development. All PD must be pre-approved by your supervisor and must be in alignment with your site/department PD plan. We recommend that PD providers/facilitators utilize SFUSD’s PD Best Practices and the SFUSD Evaluation and Feedback Form to gather feedback on any professional development offered.
How do I get paid? All professional development must be logged in your QTEA Prop A Passport. Please remember to have the training provider sign off on your hours. Once you have logged your training hours you will need to submit your Passport to your Site Administrator/Department Supervisor then to your Payroll Clerk/Secretary.
