A contract instructor is an independent contractor for the City of Newport Beach. Contract instructors are not employees. Contract instructors do not rent the City facilities, however a portion of the fees collected are retained by the City to cover facility usage, registration, administration and promotion of the class in the monthly OASIS newsletter and the Newport Navigator. More details about teaching as a contract instructor can be found on the contract class proposal form. Please return your completed class proposal to the OASIS Senior Center, 801 Narcissus Avenue, Corona del Mar, CA 92625. Applications should be submitted six to eight months prior to the desired season.
