(a) The Board shall approve an annual budget allocation to reimburse
Members for the travel costs incurred while carrying out their board
member responsibilities, including attendance at meetings of the
board or its committees and meetings/activities in schools or
communities related to the business of the board.  This
reimbursement will be limited to mileage at the approved board rate
and parking costs.
 
(b) (New) The annual budget for Member travel costs will be allocated
on a pooled basis so that the relative distances travelled by Members
in carrying out their responsibilities may be taken into account.
 
(c) (Revision of current 3.08) Travel claims must be submitted on
standard forms, provided by the Department of Financial Services, to
be reviewed by the Corporate Secretary and approved by the Chair
prior to payment.  The Chair shall have discretion to disallow
mileage that in his/her judgment is not incurred in the performance
of the Member’s duties.  Claims must be submitted monthly, and any
claims for mileage up to March 31 that are not submitted before
April 20 of the same calendar year, will not be reimbursed.
 
 
 
3.06 Other Eligible Expenses
 
(a) The Board shall approve annually a budget allocation per Member

performance of their duties as follows:
 
i) technology services, i.e. internet service plan
ii) telecommunications services, i.e. cell phone plan, fax line
iii) long distance calls on cell phone or landlines
iv) technology hardware of any kind, and
v) supplies and materials required to perform their duties.
 
(b) (Deleted)
 
(c) (Revised and transferred to 3.07(c))
 
(d) All long distance charges on landlines and cell phones, as well
charges related to cell phone calls, will be reimbursed only for calls
on Board business.  All claims of this nature must be accompanied
by appropriate receipts.
 
(e) Members will receive reimbursement up to the maximum annual
budget allocation, as determined under section 3.08(a).  All expense

the Corporate Secretary and approved by the Chair prior to
payment.  Expenditures in excess of the budget allocation must be
paid by the Member.

against the member’s budgeted allocation.  A standard template will
