ACADEMIC YEAR CALENDARS

The Department of Education’s school calendar has been published and has created no changes to the Faculty of Education’s academic year calendars approved at faculty council.  As the Academic Year Calendars for 2013-2014 are now finalized, we have added a page to this site so you can access them at your convenience.  Please click the “Academic Year Calendars” tab above to view these documents.

== // == // == // == // ==

NOTE REGARDING EXPENSE CLAIMS

Please note that the Accounting Office has requested that all small expense receipts be taped to and 8.5″x11″ (letter-sized) sheet of paper so that documents can be easily scanned and/or copied*.  Proper preparation of expense claims is the responsibility of the claimant.  Expense claims that have not been prepared properly will be returned to the claimant for proper preparation before they will be processed.

*We encourage everyone to “think green” for this purpose by including multiple receipts on a single page and using the clear side of recycled paper where possible.
