    1. Area School Principals are entitled to access the removal expenses provisions detailed in Part 7 of the Area School Teachers’ Collective Agreement (ASTCA).
    2. Area School Principals should note the following:
        • The Ministry of Education provides a lump sum payment to cover the travel, phone, transfer grant, accommodation expenses and travelling meal allowances entitlements outlined in Part 7 of the ASTCA. However, this does not prevent a Principal from choosing (as an alternative to the lump sum payment) to claim entitlements as specified in Part 7 and based on itemised receipts.
        • That transfer and removal payments will not be made for the cost associated with the sale and purchase of holiday homes and/or investment properties, i.e., expenses may only be claimed for the Principal’s nominated place of residence.
    3. Area school Principals in receipt of the Principal Recruitment Allowance should note the following:
        • Where a Principal has the approval of the Secretary for Education to receive the Principal Recruitment Allowance s/he shall be eligible for removal expenses when moving to the school where the allowance is payable, provided the appointment involves a shift to another housing district.
        • A Principal in receipt of the Principal Recruitment Allowance shall also be eligible for removal expenses when moving from the school after completing a minimum of three (3) years’ continuous service at the school. Eligibility is subject to the Principal transferring directly to another state or state integrated school as a Principal or teacher in a permanent position or in a long term reliever appointment of at least one year and that the transfer involves a shift to another housing district.
