The following list includes the benefits applicable to all public school History teachers who are approved – either provisionally or fully – to teach in the History Department’s Dual Enrollment Program.
1.) A blanket registration fee will be paid to the Missouri Valley History Conference (MVHC). Payment of the fee will permit all teachers in Omaha-area school districts participating in UNO’s History Department Dual Enrollment program to attend the MVHC without paying any additional registration fees. However, teachers wishing to attend the conference need to submit a registration form so that a name-badge can be prepared for them. Lunch tickets must be paid for by the teacher.
2) The program will reimburse each teacher’s school district for a full day’s substitute teacher salary to enable the teacher to attend the Missouri Valley History Conference.
3) The program will reimburse each teacher’s school district for one whole day’s substitute teacher salary to enable the teacher to undertake a day-long enrichment activity to increase her/his understanding of any topic taught in her/his classroom. While this day may be undertaken at any time during the school year, it is subject to approval by the Dual Enrollment Committee. Arrangements for the substitute teacher must be made within the teacher’s school district.
4) The program will provide each teacher participating in the program a petty cash “kitty” of $75 annually. The fund should enable the teacher to obtain classroom materials not ordinarily purchased by her/his district. Items purchased require reimbursement by the UNO Accounting Department.
5) The program will reimburse each teacher's school district for the fees charged by an outside speaker hired to enhance the classroom learning environment in a History Dual Enrollment classroom. The fee charged by the speaker must be “usual and customary” for the high school classroom. It is subject to approval by the Dual Enrollment Committee. The speaker’s gas mileage costs will also be reimbursed provided that the speaker (in general) lives no more than fifty miles from Omaha.
6) The program will reimburse each Dual Enrollment teacher’s school district once annually for either the transportation costs or the museum admission fees associated with a "field-excursion" to a local historical site. All students in the class receive the benefit, even those not enrolled for UNO course credit.
