Section IV.H. Carpooling: Members are required to carpool to all The Education Alliance sponsored events to help control transportation costs. Members are encouraged to make these arrangements themselves with other members who serve at the same sites or who live within close proximity to one another. Members are also encouraged to make use of the Park and Rides along most of WV’s interstate systems so that members can meet and carpool. The Education Alliance staff may also help arrange carpooling for members.
I. Mileage Reimbursement: Members will be reimbursed for mileage to all The Education Alliance sponsored trainings. Members will be reimbursed at the current West Virginia employee reimbursement rate (.575 cents per mile). Members must submit the Expense Report to the The Education Alliance office within 30 days of the event or training. If the Expense Report is not submitted to The Education Alliance office within 30 days, the member will not be reimbursed for travel expenses. The Education Alliance reserves the right to shorten or extend this deadline at the Director’s discretion.
The Education Alliance will not reimburse for regular travel related to the member’s service at his or her site. This includes, but is not limited to: travel to and from the member’s home to the service site; travel between satellite sites of the same agency; travel to and from trainings required or sponsored by the service site.
The Education Alliance reserves the right to require members to obtain permission for travel related to service day projects not required specifically by The Education Alliance. Members will be notified by email to them and their Site Supervisors when they must obtain additional authorization for travel expenses. Members who fail to obtain permission will be responsible for their own travel expenses.
