Independent Contractors (Class Instructor)

The Fair Oaks Recreation and Park District (FORPD) is currently seeking instructors to offer fun and exciting recreational and educational classes to our community. FORPD offers a wide variety of recreational programs to citizens of all ages. These programs can take place in District parks and facilities, as well as in your own location if a local business.

As a Leisure Enrichment Independent Contractor you will enter into a Recreation Services Agreement with FORPD.  As a Contract Instructor if your program is held in a District facility, you will receive 60% of all registration fees (minus added district fees) and the District will retain 40% of the total monies collected from your course .. If your program is held in your own facility, you will receive 70% of all registration fees (minus added district fees) and the District will retain 30% of the total monies collected from your course.  The Contract Instructor and Leisure Enrichment Coordinator will determine a mutually agreed upon course fee.  All registration fees are collected and deposited by FORPD.
