Title I Tutorial Reminders

We are so happy to see many of you supporting our students afterschool. Please note that we have been approved to hold Title I Tutorials on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30-5:20. While we definitely support you holding tutorials on non-meeting Wednesdays and Fridays, you can not receive a stipend for tutoring on those days. Additionally, you are paid for working outside of your contracted hours (after 3:50).

Don't forget to either escort your students to Study Hall or outdoors (or ask for Mr. Trotter to assist) - we want to minimize the number of students roaming the hallway. Also, don't forget to provide students with a bus pass if they are riding the 5:20 buses.
