My district gives me one professional day to attend conferences. That's it.
We have no in-services for our five art teachers. Though maybe once a year
they give us time to meet during an inservice day. But not every year. I
just use personal days or sick days for conferences but I only go to about one
conference a year because I have to pay for everything. I work in a wealthy,
well funded district.
