The School Board recognizes the need to develop a volunteer program to support district instructional programs and extracurricular activities. The purpose of the volunteer program will be to:

1. Assist employees in providing more individualization and enrichment of instruction;

2. Build an understanding of school programs among interested citizens, thus stimulating widespread involvement in a total educational process;

3. Strengthen school/community relations through positive participation.

A volunteer is a person who works at the recommendation of professional personnel. A volunteer will serve without compensation or employee benefits of any type, except for workers’ compensation if the school district is desirous of providing coverage. (To be covered for workers’ compensation, the appointment of a volunteer must be reflected in the official minutes.)

Volunteers will work with students under the immediate supervision and direction of certified staff and are expected to comply with all rules and regulations set forth by the district.
