After you complete a class: You have 30 days from the date completed to submit a completed course reporting form along with an original paid receipt and grade slip or transcript to Human Resource Services Before you take a class: Pre-Approval IS always required and must be submitted by February 15 th in the year prior to taking the class You basically submit all the classes you want to take a full year ahead of time Find forms online on the HR website: Kyrene School District -> Departments-> Human Resource Services-> Education Support Professionals (ESP), then click on Employee Salary Credit/Tuition Reimbursement
The short answer is yes, you can participate in both education salary credit and tuition reimbursement in the same year You can not use the same course for both options For example: you take 6 classes per year. You max out on tuition reimbursement after 2 classes, the next 4 classes can be submitted for salary credit
