After School Tutoring will start next week, January 17, 2017. Students who are not on an IEP and who fell between the 15th and 25th percentile on Fall 2016 NWEA are eligible to receive tutoring services. You may check with me to see which students are eligible.
Teachers and Paras who want to tutor will have to check with Vonda Morin to see if you have up to date payroll information. If you have been paid from the District for teaching, tutoring, or other services within the past year you will not need to fill out any paperwork but I need to know who will be tutoring. You may pick up paperwork from me. If you have NOT been paid through District payroll in the past year then you will need to see Vonda to fill out the proper paperwork.
Tutoring will consist of three (3) nights per week. You will schedule this to fit you and your student’s needs. You will also need to contact the parents to get permission for tutoring services and determine whether their child will ride the late bus home (see attached form). You will let the parents know what nights you will be tutoring their child. If you are tutoring students from another teacher’s classroom you will need to notify their parents to let them know what nights their child will be staying after school.
If you do not want to tutor but want your students to receive tutoring services let me know and I will make arrangements for them to get a tutor.
You will need to complete the time and effort log for each night of tutoring. This log will be provided to you. This is also the document that will be used to process your payment. When you are ready for payment, sign and submit to your supervisor. Once the supervisor signs, they need to send the forms to Debbe Poitra at the Business Office.

Thank you,
