The School Board recognizes that from time to time a need
may arise that requires hiring a person in the position of
"tutor." Tutors will be defined as temporary, part-time
situation personnel hired on an hourly basis.
Tutors will be provided with an employment agreement specifying
the number of hours, hourly rate, supervising teacher, and
task(s) to be accomplished but with no commitment to on-going
employment. Tutors should have some background and training
in the area of service sought, but hiring will not require
Examples of need for a tutor might include providing temporary
tutoring to a student homebound for reason of health or handicap,
providing augmentative or enrichment services to students
under a grant, providing classroom support to a hospitalized
child, and/or providing temporary individualized services
to a student in a unique circumstance.
The need to hire a tutor will follow careful administrative
review of all options available; such recommendation will
be brought before the School Board for approval if funds for
the purpose intended have not been specifically provided for
in the district budget.
Any tutor employed will be assigned to work under the direction
of a properly certified staff member.
