Volunteer Assistance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board encourages parents/guardians and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with our students. Community volunteers in our schools enrich the educational program and strengthen our schools' relationships with homes, businesses, public agencies and private institutions. The presence of volunteers in the classroom and on school grounds also enhances supervision of students and contributes to school safety.

The Superintendent or designee may authorize the use of volunteers and shall establish procedures to protect the safety of students and adults in accordance with laws related to tuberculosis testing, fingerprinting and criminal records checks.

(cf. 4127/4227/4327 - Temporary Athletic Team Coaches)

Volunteers shall act in accordance with district policies, regulations and school rules. At his/her discretion, a staff member who supervises volunteers may ask any volunteer who violates school rules to leave the campus. Staff members also may confer with the principal or designee regarding any such volunteers. The Superintendent or designee shall be responsible for investigating and resolving complaints regarding volunteers.
