providing the speaker and substitute costs. If the county incurs substitute costs for a teacher’s or
teachers’ attendance at the conference, substitute costs will be reimbursed through a grant process
to the county - $141 per teacher for the one day attendance at the conference. The attendees will be
asked to provide substitute information at the sign-in table that day. We will confirm the information
with county administration.
