Attached, you find the Independent Contractor Agreement and required documents. All Independent Contractors must have background checks, liability insurance, TB clearance, and a signed contract. This is to ensure the safety of our students. There have been instances where students were mistreated or injured by people who did not have insurance, could not pass background checks, or health clearances. Our students' safety is of our utmost concern.
Also, all Arete Independent Contractors will have to adhere to the following regulations from the Nevada County Public Health Department and the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools that were issued in a joint document, “A Public Health Guided Return to Site-Based Classroom Instruction” as they are paid with funds from the State. This includes the following requirements.
*Maintain at least six feet between adults and students and between students within a classroom or instructional area where requirements herein are in practice.
*All staff as well as all students TK-12th grade are required to wear face coverings while in the classroom and on campus, unless there is a medical or behavioral contraindication, in which case face shields can be worn in lieu of face coverings.
Please let us know if you need assistance with obtaining the TB Clearance as we have options. When you obtain fingerprints for the background check, please use the attached form. You will pay a fee (usually between $20 & $30) to the location where you obtain fingerprints. Then we will deduct $49.00 from your first payment to pay the Department of Justice fee.
We are so excited to work with you this year! Please email Andrea at [email protected] if you have any questions.
