Technology Tutors Program

Program Information

Program Goal: To meet the individual technology training needs of all staff.


A staff member who has expertise in an area agrees to work with other staff members who have requested help in a particular area. The staff member needing assistance will contact the staff member that can best help them and together they will arrange teaching time convenient for both parties. An approval form (Download here) will be completed by the student and tutor and then approved by your Administrator and the Technology Coordinator. A list of staff tutors and their areas of expertise are shown below. Certified staff are paid at the curriculum rate and support staff are paid at a rate of $10.00/hr when the tutor sessions take place outside the contract day. If the parties agree to meet during prep-time, the teacher tutor would earn time similar to the in-house sub-schedule arrangement.
