On January 18, 2019, Gull Lake Community Schools posted a job listing for a Hallway and Grounds Monitor at Gull Lake High School.
According to the listing, the hall monitor “will be responsible to monitor students in the halls and grounds of the high school and supervise students assigned to the High School Student Responsibility and Academic Support Center (SRC).”
Additionally, the duties of the hall monitor will include tasks ranging from “monitoring students and ensuring doors remain locked and secure” to providing “individual assistance with work assignments.”
The application will remain open until the position is filled. ASAP, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
I personally believe that the addition of a hall monitor would be a step in the right direction for Gull Lake High School; however, at a salary of $11.50 an hour, the position is going to be difficult to fill.
Not only could the potential hall monitor make sure that students are in class and behaving, but they could also serve as a mentor for students that need a little more help. The hall monitor could help students with homework and provide support when teachers are too busy to do so.
I think that hiring a hall monitor is a logical step for the school, and would help keep students where they belong: in the classrooms and learning.
