Travel Waivers

Process to obtain a Travel Waiver for your organization's event:

Organizations who wish to obtain a waiver of overnight travel expenditures for those attendees who wish to participate in a multi-day conference can do so by writing to the Commissioner of Education and include the details of the event as indicated in N.J.A.C. 6A:23A-7.11.

Upon review of the information submitted, waivers will be granted for those who demonstrate that the conference will offer content that will be broad and multi-disciplinary in scope, incorporate content offerings from numerous specialty areas, and includes important professional development opportunities and/or required training.

Please note that if a waiver of the prohibition on overnight travel is granted pursuant to this section, it shall permit reimbursement for travel expenses for only those individuals whose home to convention commute exceeds 50 miles.

Requests can be sent to:

New Jersey Department of Education
P.O. Box 500
Trenton, NJ 08625

Please allow sufficient time for proper review by the Department.
