Commissioners To Open Bids For Jobs At Schools On Wednesday

Potter County Commissioners will meet Wednesday, December 31. The commissioners will open any bids received for part-time positions to supervise after-school activities for middle school students in the Galeton, Oswayo Valley and Northern Potter school districts. These are contract positions, administered by Potter County Human Services, with no benefits.

A site coordinator is sought for the Galeton program. A minimum of a bachelors degree in education, social work or related field is required. Bid range is $8.00 to $12.50 per hour. Assistants are sought for the programs in all three school districts. These individuals will help the coordinators set up and provide activities, supervise students and collect data. A high school diploma is required. Bid range is $7.00 to $10 per hour.

Anyone interested in bidding should call Potter County Human Services at (814) 544-7315 for a bid package and work specifications.

Funds are provided through the federal government’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers program, which provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children,. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families.

Why would anyone with a college degree work for $7.00 to $10.00 an hour with no benefits? Get real. The real teachers make much more then that.

That is why they are never going to fill these positions locally.

Hopefully to some of those with bachelor degrees this won't be about the money. It will be about helping our youth and making a difference !! Let's hope..

Sure.....If I had spent $25,000 on student loans to get a degree I would definitely rather worry about the youth than to pay my loans back working at a job that pays little, is part time, and has no benefits. Sounds really promising.

It's known as a higher calling. We should be grateful for people like these who may fill this position.

Aparently you don't have kids or a bachelor's degree... These aren't fulltime positions. I believe they are to be part time (maybe a few hours after school)so hopefully the people with bachelors degress that are now working at Sheetz, Empereon or the DG in spite of their degrees, will be able to make a little extra to pay off those loans and make a difference with the youth.. TWO BIRDS , ONE STONE !!

Because it's better than $6.00 an hour with no benefits

If there is someone in town that has a 4 year college degree and is still working for $6 and hour with no benefits, they should have just stayed in college.

and there are people in town PROBABLY working for $6 an hour to struggle to pay back those loans... Maybe they will get the jobs (provided they apply) and their degree may prove to be more than just a piece of paper & a handful of wasted years...

Maybe those same people that worked so hard for those degrees and are struggling to pay back the loans should open their eyes and broaden their horizons by looking outside of the county or even the state for better jobs. If they are truly working minimum wage jobs when they could get something better, than they deserve to be in the situation that they are. We all pay a lot of school taxes...there is no reason that this education program can't be done by the schools thmselves. Yet another waste of taxpayer money for an unneeded program. Back in my school days if the student fell behind in their reading or math they were just held back a grade until they were able to catch up.
