Extended Learning Information for Educators

  • Remediation Classes

    Remediation classes are taught by certified teachers with a curriculum that is specially designed by Tucker teachers to provide students with opportunities to master language arts or mathematics objectives from the previous quarter. If you are interested in teaching a remediation class, you must be a certified teacher. Remediation classes have a maximum of 15 students enrolled.

    Enrichment Classes

    We would love to have you share your talents with Tucker students by teaching an enrichment class. Enrichment classes may be taught by certified and non-certified teachers. Please note that enrichment teachers are expected to design their own class and submit a proposal and course outline.

    Enrichment classes are offered in the extended learning catalog and are subject to cancellation if a minimum number of students do not register for them. Enrichment teachers can expect classes of 18 students. The most successful and popular enrichment classes provide students with hands-on, memorable experiences.

    All extended learning teachers who have not been processed by the Alexandria City Public Schools system must be processed by the Human Resources Department. This entails completing paperwork, being fingerprinted, having a background check, and showing evidence of a negative TB test within the last 12 months. A fee of $47 will be collected for fingerprinting and child abuse screening. Unfortunately, we cannot offer direct deposit for extended learning pay.

    If you would like more information or you are interested in teaching an extended learning class, please e-mail Pam Tiemeyer, Extended Learning Coordinator at pam.tiemeyer@acps.k12.va.us with your name, a copy of your résumé and how you heard about our program.
