The city I was working for in 2007 dropped tuition reimbursement just after the recession. I completed my MPA at Indiana State in 2015 ($19,000 later). The city revived reimbursement in 2016 with not retroactive clause . My Planner II has started MPA classes through an in-state school and I need to get a budget request in for FY 2018-19 to provide reimbursement. What does your jurisdiction require? Mine is fairly limited to at least a 2.0 with a degree. I assume a contract will be part of this with repayment if leaving employment within a few years and additional requirements potentially written into the contract. The policy manual does not indicate a percentage of reimbursement so I suspect that will also be written into the contract.
