Policy 409.04

Certificated Employee Tutoring

The policy of the district is to maintain a high quality instructional staff and provide an appropriate education to minimize any need for individual tutoring.

Every effort will be made by the certificated employees to help students with learning problems before recommending that the parents engage a tutor. Since there are exceptional cases when tutoring will help students overcome learning deficiencies, tutoring by certificated employees may be approved by the building principal.

Certificated employees may only tutor students other than those for whom the teacher is currently exercising teaching, administrative or supervisory responsibility unless approved by the board.

Tutoring for a fee may not take place within school facilities or during regular school hours unless specifically approved by the superintendent.
