Q:  Do I have to be a teacher at Sidney to submit a proposal?
A:  No!  We’re now accepting external proposals to fill our vacancies.

Q:  Can I submit more than one proposal?
A:  Absolutely!  Students love variety.  If you’re looking to teach different camps each week please submit a proposal for each camp.

Q:  Are there any other activities offered for students?
A: Yes!  Students can elect to participate in a variety of sports camps, including swimming lessons.  We’re pleased to also offer field trips on Fridays for students who choose to attend.

Q:  How do I obtain supplies if my proposal is selected?
A:  A list of supplies is requested in your proposal.  

Q:  How big of a group will I have each session?

Q:  Will there be any chance of having a class assistant?
A:  Yes!  All classrooms will have one teacher AND one to two counselors.

Q:  I’m interested, but I’ve only been to the district once before?
A:  A staff orientation will be held on June 27th.  It will provide staff and counselors a chance to access classroom space and inventory supplies.  Most importantly, it will provide an opportunity to meet and plan with others teaching the same age group, category, and/or week as you.
