:ATTENTION PRESENT and POTENTIAL INSTRUCTORS:
1 January 2015, the Army will cost-share newly hired instructors for
310 days, which includes 10 days for summer training events and
logistical requirements. The DD Form 2767 should only reflect 300 days.
The additional 10 days should be reported to us on a memorandum with the
exact dates of summer training events and logistical requirements.
Also, if the JCLC dates fall within the 300 days then a memorandum is
not required, as is the process now. All currently employed
instructors, or transfer instructors within the same school districts,
will remain on their current cost-share reimbursement, unless he/she
accepts a new position outside their current school district is
considered a new hire and will be cost-shared for 310 days.
last resort to achieve possible future financial uncertainties would be
to place currently employed instructors on a 310 day cost-share
reimbursement. However, if we must place all instructors on a 310 day
cost-share reimbursement, we will make every effort to inform you as
early as possible to allow you the time to work with your school
district and adjust your work schedule. Your school district may elect
to pay above the minimum cost-share reimbursement (310 days), provided
the agreement is at no cost to the government.
