LEWIS & CLARK LITERACY COUNCIL
BOARD POLICIES

Face to Face Meeting Limitations

This policy is in response to the limitations placed on face to face meetings as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic and is in effect until face to face meetings are determined to be safe for all involved or until further notice.

  1. Although the Board does not recommend face to face meetings between tutors and students, at this time, there may be some student/tutor pairs who are interested in face to face tutoring, under safe conditions.

  2.  Both parties (student and teacher), must be completely comfortable with the setting and able to work in a place where appropriate social distancing can be maintained for their own health and safety.

  3. The Board strongly recommends that masks are worn and local county health protocols are followed.

  4. As adults, over the age of 18, it is the responsibility of the student and the tutor to determine what is appropriate for them.
