Summer Tutoring
I have been approached by a parent that is wanting me to tutor her child this summer. She is wanting to pay me and offered me money. The student is a current student of mine and will be repeating first grade next year due to academics. By school policy, he will be my student next year also. It would not be during school hours nor on the school property? Is this a code of ethnic violation?

It is unethical to receive money for tutoring current students, UNLESS you get prior approval from the local board of education. SO, contact them and get their approval.

It doesn't matter if it's during school hours, these other solutions have stated that it's unethical to receive money for tutoring a current student. I would review what your code of ethics states, as every state is different. If possible maybe you can suggest a different person, like a college student that you may know. Or there are different places that do tutoring for their business. Try a different approach other than trying to violate the code.

To have any extra paying job related to education, you must have approval from the school system. If you did not want to tutor during the school, you could make suggests for school reading activities that would enhance next years understanding.

You could also encourage the student' parent to enroll in an after school tutoring program and if you are looking to make extra money apply for an after school tutor position.

I think that is important to check with your states code of ethics. I think it is a conflict of interest considering the student will be repeating the grade and in your class next year.
