Rolling Reader program has job openings

Hey, all you students in secondary education, there’s a job for you.
The Rolling Reader and STAR College Grant Program has tutor job openings at Poulsbo, Suquamish, and Wolfle elementary schools.
Rolling Reader has opening for qualified students from Kingston and Poulsbo middle schools, and Kingston and North Kitsap high schools. Students hired can earn money toward college.
Applicants must be at least 14 years old, have a 2.5 GPA, be fluent in English, pass a standard background screening check, follow school dress codes, and provide their own transportation.
The program is a college grant program that pays students $10 per hour to read with students who are reading below grade level. “STAR” tutors can earn $100 to $2,000 during the year towards their college or technical college tuition.
Last year, the program deposited more than $17,500 in funding to accounts for 42 STAR tutors.
To obtain an application for a tutor position, or find out how to be a donor to the program, contact Rolling Reader Coordinator Terri Day at tday@nkschools.org, or 360-396-3867.
