Border Land School Division
believes in lifelong learning for both staff and students.  As such, Border Land School
Division offers a Summer Institute in late August to provide learning opportunities for staff. 
Summer Institute session topics are generated based on the focus of the divisional priorities, the learning needs of the staff and other emerging relevant topics that arise.

Teachers are not limited to the number of Summer Institute session they attend.  Teachers can claim one day of time in lieu during the school year for attending a minimum of a full day of Border Land School Division Summer Institute sessions.  Principals need to approve the date during the school year for the day in lieu.  There will be no days in lieu granted for other professional learning sessions attended in the summer.

If there is a session that is targeted for support staff and a school principal identifies that they should attend, they will be paid the regular full time school day hours to attend for each day and will not be granted a day in lieu. 

Mileage for attending these sessions in reimbursed at the PD mileage rate.  Staff driving to and from Ross L Gray can claim accommodation costs at the PD rate.

Report of absence forms will be issued at each session to participants in attendance.

Registration for Summer Institute sessions will occur in June.
