Definition: "Tutoring" means giving private instruction or help to an individual or group for which the teacher receives remuneration other than through the School Committee.
A Hopkinton teacher cannot recommend that one of his/her own students receive tutoring. A teacher may not tutor any students who are currently enrolled in any of her/his classes.
Teachers and other public employees may not approach a student, or the student's parents, seeking private tutoring work. A teacher may provide tutoring when the relationship is initiated by the parents or a student and school administration may give the parent(s) or student a list of school staff who are willing to tutor.
A teacher cannot use school resources such as classrooms or materials in connection with private tutoring. A public school employee cannot use a school or district website to advertise private tutoring services.
