How do I become a Contract Instructor?

Dear Potential Instructor,

Thank you for your interest in offering a recreation class to our community of San Dimas. The City of San Dimas Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to providing the citizens, community organizations, and interest groups of the community a broad spectrum of activities during their leisure hours, based on their needs and desires to enrich the quality of life in the community. Programs and activities may be designed for preschoolers, school age children, teens, adults, older adults or families.

Our instructors are independent contractors for the City of San Dimas. This means that the instructor is a contract employee of the City of San Dimas, contracted to conduct specialized recreation programs of an instructional nature. As instructor you are responsible to provide all equipment and supplies needed to conduct your proposed class in a professional manner.

Instructors are contracted quarterly on a 68/32 basis. This means that instructors receive 68% of the registration fees collected; the City receives 32% of the registration fees collected. Instructors are paid at the conclusion of the session and checks are generally distributed within 2 weeks of the class end date.

Class instructors that will be teaching children under the age of 18 must be fingerprinted through the San Dimas Sheriff’s Department and some instructors are required to carry liability insurance for the class they instruct through the program. A current copy of your insurance certificate and an additional insured endorsement will be required when you submit your Contractor Agreement for Recreation Class Instructor.

Please return the class proposal form to the Parks and Recreation Department at 245 E. Bonita Ave. San Dimas, CA 91773. Attach any additional information, certifications, samples of work or resume with this form.

How it Works:

The process begins with the independent contract instructor “proposing” a course or activity by completing the Contract Instructor Proposal Handbook. The proposal is then submitted to the City of San Dimas Parks and Recreation Department.

The Recreation Coordinator will review the proposal, assess the “content” of the course/activity to determine its potential in meeting the Department’s vision and goals, and then contact you for a more detailed discussion.

Together, the Recreation Coordinator works with you to determine the specific design of a course/activity in regards to facility suitability, facility availability, fee structure, course time frames, participant minimums and maximums, age ranges, and course descriptions, etc.

Once the San Dimas Parks and Recreation Department accepts and approves your proposal, a formal written contract will be produced that will specifically outline the agreement.
