Question: Instructor compensation for after school programs
Our PTO would like to start an after school enrichment program for students. What is the best and easiest way for our PTO, as a nonprofit 501c3 organization, to compensate our instructors? What if some of the instructors are teachers at our school?

Craig writes: I think the most common way to handle this is to hire the instructors as contractors and pay them a flat fee. You then will need to issue IRS form 1099s to anyone who is paid $600 or more for the year. Check with the district to make sure there are no union or district rules that will affect whether or not you can hire teachers.
