Relations with Students
Volunteers are viewed by students and parents as representatives of the School Board and the School Administration, and are perceived by students as authority figures. When students raise issues of a personal or controversial nature, volunteers are placed in a difficult position. While working in a volunteer capacity in school or at school-related activities, however, volunteers must refrain from debating, discussing or imposing their opinions on students in personal or controversial issues.
School personnel depend upon and plan for the assistance of volunteers on a regular basis. Volunteers are encouraged to notify the various personnel with whom they work, as far in advance as possible, if they are unable to help in their regular time slot.
