Verona R-7 board approves tutoring option for this years

Friday, December 10, 2010

Students struggling with homework in the Verona R-7 School District will now have the option to participate in after-school tutoring sessions. The R-7 Board approved the plan at its Nov. 18 meeting.

Students will be tutored by teachers that may be impacted by losing career ladder compensation this year, allowing them to recoup some of those losses.

Board members also approved stipends for teachers utilizing non-contracted hours while working with students from various clubs or organizations, including FCCLA, Student Council and FBLA.

In other business, the board approved D.J. Sherwood as assistant boys' basketball coach.

Board candidate filing begins Dec. 14 with candidates being able to pick up packets from the superintendent's office beginning Dec. 7. Filing hours are from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, Dec. 14 through Dec. 17, and Jan. 3 through Jan. 17, 2011. Candidates may also file between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Jan. 18, 2011.

School offices will be closed during Christmas break with normal operations set to resume Jan. 3, 2011.

Board members were also told the Jordan Valley Dental van had been to the campus and had rendered services to 42 students for a total of $17,745 in dental work over a 10-day period. Those efforts were coordinated by Becky Mayberry, school nurse.

"Students will be tutored by teachers that may be impacted by losing career ladder compensation this year, allowing them to recoup some of those losses." So, is this tutoring availble to help the students or the teachers?
