Stemnock, Suzanne K.
Ninety-nine school systems out of 493 responding to a questionnaire stated that they accept educational travel as professional growth credit. This report examines the professional requirements which may be met in this way and the growth credit on the increment steps of the salary schedule. The policies of state departments of education regarding the acceptability of educational travel to meet certification requirements are also reported. Some space is devoted to a discussion of the acceptability of educational travel for horizontal advancement on the salary schedule, mentioned by 24 systems. Also briefly discussed are six systems which accept travel equivalency credits for optional salary supplements at certain increment steps. Typical application forms for credit allowance, with evaluation forms, from five school districts and two state departments are included. A copy of the questionnaire used in preparing the report is also included. (MBM)
