CAMPBELL COUNTY—Traveling educators have a little more breathing room for accommodation expenses when they leave Campbell County for conferences and seminars.
“When they go to these professional development conferences out of state, they’re having problems being reimbursed for the full hotel-motel fees because our policy limits them to $150 per night,” said Board of Education Chairman Josh Parker.
In larger metro areas, even the least expensive hotel rooms are $250 per night, he said.
The board – minus an absent Danny Wilson – unanimously approved changing the hotel allowance to $250 per night for both in-state and out-of-state accommodations.
