Still needed: CURRENT STUDENTS for CUIP Chgo Publ Schls tech­nol­ogy assistants

Are you handy with com­put­ers and print­ers? Do you com­mu­ni­cate well with ele­men­tary school teach­ers? You might enjoy work­ing in a neigh­bor­hood Chicago Pub­lic School as an NSP / CUIP Tech!
Cur­rent reg­is­tra­tion as UofC stu­dent is required. (Col­lege and grad Divi­sions both okay.) Work-Study eli­gi­bil­ity is pre­ferred. Stu­dents with­out Work-Study are lim­ited to 6 hours per week; with Work-Study, lim­ited to 10 hours per week up to the annual award amount. The posi­tion pays $11.50 per hour.
CUIP (the Chicago Pub­lic Schools | Uni­ver­sity of Chicago Inter­net Project) is a small education-outreach orga­ni­za­tion at the Uni­ver­sity work­ing at a group of CPS schools, mostly in the imme­di­ate vicin­ity of the Uni­ver­sity, to help them achieve goals of improv­ing teach­ing and learn­ing through tech­nol­ogy. Most schools in the CUIP group are also served by the Neigh­bor­hood Schools Pro­gram, and in those schools Uni­ver­sty stu­dents can work as tech­nol­ogy assis­tants, employed by NSP and with guid­ance and assis­tance from CUIP.
We have sev­eral vacan­cies for that NSP / CUIP Tech posi­tion for Autumn Quar­ter. An NSP / CUIP Tech works at a sin­gle school, vis­it­ing there prefer­ably at least twice a week for a total of 6 to 10 hours, to per­form main­te­nance and sup­port activ­ity (and once in a while more cre­ative projects!) to meet the plans and needs of the school admin­is­tra­tion and teach­ers along with CUIP staff.
