Birmingham City Schools Partner with Jefferson State

Jefferson State has established a partnership with United Way and Birmingham City Schools to help decrease the learning achievement gap by providing them with Jefferson State students who meet the criteria to provide in-house tutoring.

Purpose: To provide high-dose tutoring for at-risk students enrolled in Birmingham City Schools (BCS) to account for lost instructional time due to COVID-19 disruptions.

Need: BCS seeks to hire 10-20 JSCC students to provide English and Math tutoring to students in grades K-10th grade.

Commitment: Tutoring will require up to 20 hours a week at a pay rate of $15 per hour. Tutors will work in small groups to provide remediation and will be employed from the fall of 2021 through May of 2022 by BCS.

When and Where: Tutoring will take place M-F between the hours of 8 a.m.– 3 p.m. (based on tutor’s availability) at an assigned BCS.

Training: Training will be provided by Birmingham City Schools on curriculum materials selected to bridge the learning gap. A curriculum coach will be placed in each school to assist all tutors as needed.

Interested: Please contact [email protected] or contact Dr. Cindy Shackelford [email protected]

To be eligible for this opportunity you must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 (3.3 preferred) and/or with high percentages/letter grades in English and Math. GPA will be verified in DegreeWorks. Other criteria may be substituted by BCS. BCS will start review of applications immediately with a tentative start date of Spring 2022 or earlier. Receipt of applications will be ongoing.
