• Guidelines for Volunteers
    Volunteers play an important role in the quality of life in all district schools. The assistance and support they offer to staff and students is invaluable, and their contributions are part of what makes our school special. The following guidelines have been developed to assist you in serving in this unique function. Offering to volunteer in any district school assumes your understanding and agreement with these guidelines.


    Information you may see of hear can effect the lives and futures of individual students. Volunteers must respect the privacy of this information and maintain the same in strict confidence. This same standard of confidentiality applies to policy statements, school procedures and district reports.

    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.
