If attending a Pro-d activity during the school year, teachers are reminded to complete an absence request in SmartFindExpress (SFE). As part of your Pro-D request, you may apply to have your TTOC for that day covered (if necessary). If approved, the NDTA will submit a leave of absence request to HR and copy you. You will then need to put your absence into SmartFindExpress (SFE). Use the following code for the reason for absence: 641 KLTF - CVTA/NDTA - Teacher Pro-D. These absence requests require approval from principals and need to be submitted at least 48 hours before the event. You are advised to submit your request earlier if possible.
