BOARD POLICY - 4137
The Board of Education believes every effort should be made to resolve students' learning problems at school, before recommending that parents/guardians engage a tutor or other professional help. The Board of Education recognizes that beneficial educational experiences are not limited to the normal school day and year, and also recognizes the right of district employees to work privately in their professional capacity.
To avoid any conflict of interest, or any perception that a student's grade or status might benefit by individual private instruction from the students' teacher or coach, persons employed by the Irvine Unified School District may not solicit or accept any kind of remuneration other than district compensation for individual professional services rendered to a student who is concurrently a member of his/her class, team, or performing group.
Any person employed by the Irvine Unified School District who realizes financial gain, directly or indirectly, other than district compensation from professional services provided to a student who is concurrently a member of his/her class, team, or performing group, shall have an approved plan that mitigates any perception of undue influence or favoritism.
