Please note that you may need to complete and upload additional medical documentation after you submit your request.

In order to submit an accommodations request, we ask that you complete the Accommodations Request Form ASAP.

9. (Optional) CM Leave Request from Institute <Due 5/19>

Teach For America has an Institute Attendance Policy. If you plan to seek approval to miss any days during the 2017 Tulsa Institute, you will need to submit a national institute leave request. The Tulsa Institute runs from Sun, June 18th to Sat, July 22nd. Note that CMs have Saturdays or Sundays free from official programming, so those days do not need to be requested as leave. Completing this above form is a request, not a guarantee, and must be approved by the institute. The Tulsa Institute respond to all leave requests within two weeks of receipt. If you have not received a response within this window, and/or if you have questions about a previously submitted request, please email tulsainstitute@teachforamerica.org. All leave requests must be submitted no later than Fri, May 19th. Any leave request(s) submitted or received after this date will need to be discussed with your School Director on site upon your arrival at institute.
