Teacher Compensation Policy  

While we are cooperative in nature, there are clearly some moms that carry significantly more responsibility with planning and teaching.  As a result, we offer the following discounts for teachers: 

Elementary and middle school teachers receive one free tuition for a child in the grade you are teaching. (If you are teaching for another grade level, a tuition gift amount will be given equal to the tuition for  the grade level that you are teaching.)

High school teachers receive an honorarium per student credited toward tuition based on predetermined costs by the Steering Committee.

Student teachers are only permitted with special permission from the Steering Committee. Student teachers must be at least 15 years old and there must be at least 2 class levels between the student teacher and the grade he/she wishes to teach. Student teachers may receive a maximum gift of $20 per student taught.
