District Paid Association Dues

Dues and fees paid with district funds are limited to professional associations and student associations.  Membership in professional associations provide added opportunities, resources, continuing education, and professional development.  They also make it possible for our district to conduct business in more efficient ways.  Participation in student associations results in scholarship opportunities for students.  Employees pay employment association (labor union) dues directly to the labor unions.  These dues are not paid with district funds.
