GUIDELINES

The intent of the tutoring program is to provide an alternative education option that supports the student’s
reintegration into the mainstream campus. The following guidelines have been established in an effort to
formalize the district wide tutoring program:

        All students being placed on tutoring must have the pre-approval of the District Director for that site.
         A payroll authorization form, along with their time sheet, must be submitted to the Business Office.

        Once the Director has approved a student for tutoring, the Director/site will forward the student’s
         information to the Human Resources Department for final review and assignment approval.

        Direct supervision of the staff member will be handled by the administrator of the building where the
         program is housed.

        Each site Principal is responsible for the students assigned to the tutoring program (e.g., discipline,
         attendance, etc.)

        Staff member’s will utilize the web based PLATO as the primary teaching tool for students based on
         student need.

        Student load will be 15-20 students per group with additional capacity to be assessed based on need.

        Each school site shall have a tutor coordinator who is responsible for overseeing their own students.

        Individual Tracking Reports will be maintained for the student’s individual progress and will be
         made available upon request. A copy should be given to the case manager/counselor at the site.

        Each site will need to maintain a current tutor list and status list of any students on tutoring and
         provide a copy to the Human Resources Department.

        Human Resources Department will keep a master list of all tutors and students on tutoring. It is
         extremely important that all information on tutoring be provided to HR, especially the start and end
         dates.

The group tutor program will reduce the need for one-on-one tutors. If the site needs increase we may add
additional resources at other sites to build capacity and geographic access.
