Summary :
Outdoor Education has 50 overnight programs throughout the school year. On average those programs are 3-days, 2-nights and require a nurse to be on-site 24/7. Summer camp operates four 7-day, 6-night sessions and also requires a nurse on site 24/7. Stone Canyon currently works with eight contracted nurses on a rotating basis throughout the year for various programs. At times, we struggle to be able to ensure a nurse is on site 24/7. Adding this additional nurse to our staffing pool would give us additional flexibility.

Kirsten Roberts is a Colorado Licensed Registered Nurse. Her brother, Thomas (TJ) Roberts, is the Program Manager for Outdoor Education at Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures. We are requesting that Kirsten Roberts be allowed to be added to the contracted nurse list for Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures. We have a process in place that allows all nurses equal access to signing up for programs, based on their availability and hospital work schedule. This process is overseen by Sonja White, our Administrative Assistant. Mr. Roberts will not be able to exert any influence over the sign-up process for outdoor education or summer camp.

Ms. Roberts' direct supervisor will be Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures Director Jolee Jones. There will be no managerial or supervisory relationship between Mr. and Ms. Roberts.

According to Policy DJ-R, “No employee or close friend or family member of a District employee shall be allowed to sell to the District or to a minor or the parent or guardian of any such minor enrolled in the District where the employee is performing services, goods, materials, or services of any kind other than that for which (s)he is employed by the District except by specific prior Board approval”.
