The teacher’s employer will be sent a notice that the teacher has enrolled in the program and that we will need the employer to give us data to confirm that requirements have been met. Coaches will also be notified.
The $800 stipend will be dispensed in one payment at the end of the school year. The check will be mailed by June 30, 2019 to the teacher’s home address as listed on the application. It is the teacher’s responsibility to update the address with Preschool Promise if there is a change during the school year.
As part of the Promise Stipend Application the teacher must acknowledge that Preschool Promise will send a 1099-MISC at the end of the year if more than $600 is paid to the individual, and it is the individual's responsibility to claim this as income on taxes.
By joining this program, you agree that your employer may release information to Preschool Promise, Inc., such as but not limited to: attendance records, employment status by dates, and compliance with professional development such as the video recordings of reading books in the classroom. Preschool Promise will keep this information confidential and it will be used for determining status for the Pilot stipend and for research to improve Preschool Promise in the future.
