​At Saint Joseph School teachers routinely make themselves available for extra help or assistance outside of the typical class schedule for a minimum of 45 minutes to one hour weekly. However, it is inappropriate to accept any compensation for tutoring or outside help. These activities may include tutoring, Parent Education Workshops, or other activities approved in collaboration with the principal.
