SCHOOL COMMUNITY RELATIONS
3150 SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS

The volunteer program is designed to supplement the regular educational program through the use of volunteers who work directly with individual students, teachers or administrators or who apply their talents to any number of supportive service areas such as clerical duties or producing educational materials.

The program is intended to assist school personnel directly or indirectly, in meeting the needs of students and the goals of the school program.

A volunteer is a person who works on an occasional or regular basis at school sites or other educational facilities to support the efforts of professional personnel. Such a volunteer worker will serve in that capacity without compensation or employee benefits; however, the District provides liability protection under its District's insurance program.

Use of volunteers within the District is not to conflict with or replace any regularly authorized personnel (as per negotiated agreements).

Volunteers can only work with students under the immediate supervision and direction of a teacher or administrator.

Volunteers are expected to comply with all rules and regulations set forth by the District.

The recruitment and selection of volunteers by the administration is an ongoing process and includes an application, reference check, administrative review and approval by the Board.

However, the Superintendent/designee retains the right to approve or reject any volunteer applications submitted for consideration

The assignment and orientation of volunteers will be carried out by the Volunteer Coordinator and/or the appropriate building principal. The ongoing evaluation of the work of volunteer aides will be the responsibility of the appropriate building principal.

Administrative regulations will be developed to implement the terms of this policy.
