Classroom Monitors

    During the pandemic health situation, Temporary Solutions, Inc. is partnering with Alexandria City Public Schools to help keep our students attentive in the school classrooms. The students will learn at-home or at-school with an on-line teacher. The Classroom Monitor ensures that students (up to eight students) stay engaged in their learning; laptops and classroom instruction will be followed per the instruction of the on-line teacher (using Zoom video-conference technology).

    If interested in becoming a classroom monitor, apply here!
