                    Tutoring ~ Leadership ~ Continuous Improvement
                             (Approved September 16, 2010)

The Board of Education of the Logan-Rogersville R-VIII School District recognizes the
relationship between high-quality instruction, teacher leadership, continuous
improvement and student achievement, and therefore, supports the Wildcat TLC program.
The program is established to encourage teacher involvement in Tutoring, Leadership,
and Continuous Improvement. The program is aligned with the current Comprehensive
School Improvement Plan (CSIP) and Building Improvement Plans (BIPs), and is based
on available student achievement data and the results of needs assessments at the school
and district level.

Definitions

        Tutoring: Supplemental instruction provided by a certified teacher to a student or
        group of students, outside of the regular school day, that enhances the regular
        instructional program(s) received in the classroom.

        Leadership: Responsibilities assigned to certified staff outside of the regular
        school day focused on enhancing student learning at the school or district level.
        Assignment to leadership teams must show a direct connection to enhancing
        student achievement as set forth through the Comprehensive School Improvement
        Plan (CSIP) and Building Improvement Plan (BIP).

        Continuous Improvement: Focus teams established for the purpose of enhancing
        student learning at the school or district level. Work in the area of Continuous
        Improvement is driven by the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP)
        and Building Improvement Plan (BIP) as the district/school seeks to problem-
        solve areas of needed focus/growth.

Eligibility

        Eligibility for participation in Wildcat TLC is reserved for teachers with a
        minimum of two years of classroom teaching experience. It is important to note
        that certified staff may or may not accumulate hours in each of the three areas set
        forth in the Wildcat TLC program. Participants are not permitted to accumulate 25
        hours in each of the three areas. Instead, certified staff might accumulate their 25
        hours in one, two, or three of the areas depending on their level of involvement in
        each area. Collectively, participants may only accumulate 25 hours total in the
        three areas provided for under the program. Certified staff that are not classroom
      teachers may only accumulate hours in the area of Leadership and Continuous
      Improvement unless prior approval for participation in the school level tutoring
      program is granted by the principal. Program dates are limited to August 17, 2011
      to May 18, 2012. Any hours logged prior to or beyond these dates are not eligible
      for compensation under the Wildcat TLC program. No activity can be counted
      toward the Wildcat TLC program in which a participant is already receiving
      compensation. All hours logged must occur outside of the contract day and
      reported to the building principal. Administrators are not eligible to participate in
      the Wildcat TLC program.

Guidelines

      Tutoring

             Each school principal will identify areas of need and students to be served
             through a before/after school tutoring program. Collaboration with
             teachers and school level teams will assist in providing a focused tutoring
             program centered on student learning. Regardless of whether or not
             tutoring occurs with an individual student or a group of students, time
             spent tutoring may only be counted one time on the tutoring log. Training
             for tutors will be provided by principals in tutoring expectations, progress
             monitoring, data analysis, and specific school related topics as needed.

      Leadership

             Certified staff will be asked to serve in a leadership capacity on school
             level or district wide committees and/or teams. To be eligible for the
             Wildcat TLC program, hours served in a leadership capacity must be tied
             directly to student learning and occur outside of regular contract time.
             Assignment to leadership teams will occur at both the school level and
             district level as areas of focus are identified. To be considered Leadership
             tied to enhancing student learning, committee/team work must be tied to
             the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) and Building
             Improvement Plan (BIP) as they relate to student learning, achievement,
             and instruction.

      Continuous Improvement

             Collaborative efforts that support improvement in the area(s) of core
             content area instruction, implementation of research-based instructional
             practices, and data-driven decision making will be considered as
             continuous improvement efforts under the Wildcat TLC program. Such
             work will be driven by the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan
             (CSIP) and Building Improvement Plan (BIP). The principal will identify
             areas of continuous improvement. Collaboration with teachers and school
             level teams will assist in providing areas of continuous improvement at the
               school level, grade level, or departmental level. Continuous improvement
               efforts are intended to 1) support the collective learning of teachers, 2)
               align with district, school, and teacher goals, 3) incorporate active learning
               and provide teachers the opportunity to practice and apply new
               knowledge, 4) provide opportunities for collective participation by staff
               members in the same school community, subject area, grade level or
               department.


Compensation

The Logan-Rogersville R-VIII School District shall seek to enhance instruction by
meeting the needs of individual students. In meeting these needs, the district shall provide
programs beyond those offered during the regular school day. The district will pursue all
available state or federal aid for its extended instructional programs and areas of focus
contained in the Wildcat TLC program.

Certified teachers will be compensated at a rate of $20.00 per hour, not to exceed a total
of 25 hours during the 2011-2012 school year, for work completed in the area(s) of
Tutoring, Leadership, and Continuous Improvement. Work performed can be accounted
for in ¼ hour, ½ hour increments or on an hourly basis. All work performed in these three
areas must be accounted for outside of regular contract responsibilities. Positions for
which certified staff already receive a stipend from the district will not be eligible to
count toward Wildcat TLC work.

Documentation of participation in the Wildcat TLC program will include successful
completion of the Intent to Participate form (See Attachment A) and approval of a school
level Responsibility Plan & Summary (See Attachment B). Any certified teacher who
does not complete the Intent to Participate form will not be compensated for work
performed throughout the course of the 2011-2012 school year. A log of work completed
in the areas of Tutoring, Leadership, and Continuous Improvement is to be submitted
quarterly to the school principal (Attachments C & D). Final documentation, to be
completed at the end of the school year prior to leaving for the summer, will include a
cumulative time sheet of all hours accumulated throughout the year in the areas of
Tutoring, Leadership, and Continuous Improvement.
