University Vacations

Tutors are not expected to work during Boston University vacations, study periods, or final exams, or school vacation weeks.

Lead tutors are responsible for informing site coordinators, in advance, of tutor schedule changes associated with vacations.

If site programs are operating and tutors wish to continue working, they must obtain approval from their lead tutors. Working during BU vacations requires careful monitoring of Work-Study award levels and advanced planning of timesheet submission.

If lead tutors wish to work during University vacations, their funds will be reviewed before approval is given.

Boston and Chelsea Public Schools Vacations

The Boston Medical Center, as well as some after-school programs, continue to operate during public school vacations. In-school programs do not operate during these periods.

Lead tutors are responsible for notifying tutors, in advance, of all holiday schedules.
