The OAPT is aware that it can be very difficult for high school teachers to attend the OAPT conference because so little financial support for professional development is made available by their schools, board and unions. We encourage teachers to tap into these sources wherever possible. In addition we make things easier on teachers’ wallets in several ways. These supports are only possible through the generosity of several organizations.
1) Conference fees are kept very low because the host university provides the facilities and many of the speakers at no cost. Our thanks this year go to our host - Perimeter Institute.
2) Residence fees are subsidized (2nd night)
3) The OAPT recognizes that some teachers will have much higher travel costs. Applications for a travel subsidiary can be completed through this form, deadline is April 15.
