HAMILTON-WENHAM REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
PRIVATE TUTORING OF STUDENTS
The Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District recognizes that from time to time parents of students in the district will request the private tutoring services of the district's staff. The District's Private Tutoring Policy is as follows:
- Private tutoring of students by teachers and/or staff will be conducted off-site.
- Teachers, or any other district employee, who provide private tutoring to students must submit a “Disclosure of Appearance of Conflict of Interest” form as required by M.G.L. 268A, Section 23(b)(3) to the Superintendent prior to providing tutoring to any student.
- Teachers, or any other district employee, may not solicit or provide private tutoring to students in their current classes or students for whom they have any current responsibility. For example, if a staff person is a member of child study team, he/she will not privately tutor a student who is serviced by the team; likewise, if a staff person is the student’s classroom teacher, he/she will not privately tutor a student who is in his/her class.
- If any concerns arise regarding conflict of interest, the principal or appropriate supervisory personnel will determine whether the private tutoring arrangement can occur.
