Applications are now open for math and reading tutor positions in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 for the upcoming school year.
The positions will be through the Minnesota Reading Corps, which is a statewide initiative to help every child become a successful reader by the end of third grade, and the Minnesota Math Corps, which has a goal of ensuring students are proficient in algebra by the end of eighth grade.
Reading and Math Corps members receive training and then work one-on-one or with small groups of students to boost skills. Members make an 11-month commitment, during which they receive a modest living allowance and education award. Full-time members may also receive health insurance.
