(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, any person may be permitted by the governing board of any community college district to serve as a nonteaching volunteer aide under the immediate supervision and direction of the academic personnel of the district to perform noninstructional work that serves to assist the academic personnel in the performance of teaching and administrative responsibilities. A nonteaching volunteer aide shall not be an employee of the district, and shall serve without compensation of any type or other benefits accorded to employees of the district, except as provided in Section 3364.5 of the Labor Code.
(b) No district may abolish any of its classified positions and utilize volunteer aides, as authorized herein, in lieu of classified employees who are laid off as a result of the abolition of a position. A district shall not refuse to employ a person in a vacant classified position and use volunteer aides in lieu thereof.
(c) Volunteer aides may be used to enhance a district's educational program, but not to displace classified employees, nor to allow districts to utilize volunteers in lieu of normal employee requirements.
