Course Tuition Benefits (Employees and Board Members), Policy No. 480

Printable PDF Board Policy 480

Moore Norman Technology Center ("MNTC") encourages its employees, board members, and adjunct instructors ("Personnel"), to enroll in courses for the purposes of improving skills and increasing knowledge through its course offerings. In an effort to facilitate such strategy, MNTC provides varying levels of tuition discounts for such Personnel. Subject to the following sentence, the enrollee must purchase books, study materials, and supplies required for the class, workshop, or seminar. If a full-time employee is attending a course at the request of the Superintendent, Administration, or the enrollee's supervisor in furtherance of the enrollee's development, then in addition to the payment of tuition, MNTC shall pay for that enrollee's books, study materials and supplies determined by MNTC, in its discretion, to be appropriate for the course.

The following categories of Personnel are eligible to take long-term career programs or short-term open-enrollment classes offered by MNTC tuition free or one-half the normal tuition cost.  

  • Full-time Employees/ Current Board Members

No tuition will be charged to this category of individuals. Employees will go through the admittance process and if selected to attend, they will only be charged for books, study materials, and supplies. Class times for courses other than approved professional development must be outside of employee’s current work schedule.

  • Regular Part-time Employees

One-half tuition will be charged this category of employees after one year of employment and a minimum of 500 hours worked ("PTE"). Employees will go through the admittance process and if selected to attend, they will pay one-half of the tuition cost along with the regular cost fees for books, study materials, and supplies. Class times for courses other than approved professional development must be outside of employee’s current work schedule.

  • Adjunct Instructors

One-half tuition will be charged this category of employees after one year of employment and a minimum of 500 hours worked ("Adjuncts"). If (a) the class fills to capacity when the number of enrolled students includes such Adjuncts, and (b) persons who are not Adjuncts are excluded from enrollment due to the constraints of capacity, then the enrolled Adjuncts shall be given the option of (i) paying the full tuition, or (ii) being withdrawn as students (with those who enrolled last being withdrawn first), so as to enable the persons who are not Adjuncts to enroll in the course and pay the full tuition. Adjuncts must complete a “Course Tuition Benefits Intent to Enroll” form in the Human Resources Department prior to enrolling. Class times for courses other than approved professional development must be outside of employee’s current work schedule.
