WHO ARE CONTRACT INSTRUCTORS?
Contract Instructors are independent contractors for the City of Encinitas and not considered employees of the City.
Contract Instructors will:
- Be responsible for designing and executing their own program content.
- Offer a specialized activity or service of community interest.
- Have expertise and experience in the program being provided.
HOW ARE CONTRACT INSTRUCTORS PAID?
A portion of the fees collected from program participant registration fees is paid to the Contract Instructor and a portion is retained by the City to cover things like facility usage, registration software, administration staff, credit card fees, and promotion of the class in the Encinitas Activity Guide, which is distributed three times per year. The City's standard payment split for contract classes is 60% of the program registration fees collected paid to the Contract Instructor with 40% retained by the City. Adults 50+ programs have a set price of $7 per class and the split is 70%/30%. In some cases, a flat rate per program may be considered in lieu of the percentage model for Contract Instructor compensation. The contract instructor assumes all tax liability on the revenue received from instructed classes and is expected to report all earnings for tax purposes.
