How to use the Cohn Trust for Professional Development


Rationale: The Martin H. Cohn Trust is for the benefit of social studies teachers of Jefferson County Kentucky public schools for the purpose of providing educational and travel grants to teachers of middle school children in Jefferson County, which will reward them for their efforts, refresh them during their summer and provide them with additional insight in the efforts to educate their students. Martin H. Cohn was a former public school teacher who passed away on September 18, 2000.  This trust is for middle school social studies teachers to travel for conferences and to bring information/new ideas to their students.  There is a total of $15,000 in the Martin H. Cohn trust and each applicant is eligible for up to $1500 to use toward professional learning. 



      Teachers will submit an application that describes their learning opportunity and how they will bring the information back to the JCTA Board, JCPS Social Studies Lead, and their students.

      Applications will be reviewed by the JCPS Social Studies Lead, a deeper learning Resource Teacher, and one member of the JCTA board that is not a district resource teacher, instructional coach, or instructional lead.  The application review team will have two weeks to review applications and to submit the names of teachers who are approved. 

      Teachers who are approved will receive their funds accordingly. 

      All receipts and vouchers will be turned in within 45 days of the end of the conference.  If receipts and vouchers are not submitted timely, the teacher is responsible for reimbursing the funds requested back to the Association. 

      Teachers who were approved for funding will present their information learned and how they will use the information with students to the JCTA board and the Social Studies Instructional Lead at a future JCTA Bd of Directors meeting.
