The Board recognizes the need to develop a school volunteer program to support District instructional programs and extracurricular activities.
The purpose of the volunteer program will be to:
a) Assist employees in providing more individualization and enrichment of instruction;
b) Build an understanding of school programs among interested citizens, thus stimulating· widespread involvement in a total educational process;
c) Strengthen school/community relations through positive participation. Volunteers are persons who are willing to donate their time and energies to assist principals, teachers, and other school personnel in implementing various phases of school programs.
Volunteers shall serve in that capacity without compensation or employee benefits except for liability protection under the District's insurance program.
An application shall be filled out by each prospective volunteer and forwarded to the Volunteer Coordinator for evaluation. Once references are verified, building principals are notified that the volunteer has been approved. principals are responsible for placement and monitoring of volunteers within their programs. However, the Superintendent retains the right to approve or reject any volunteer applications submitted for consideration.
