Policy 617-R School Volunteers - Regulations

  • 600 – Education Program

The recruitment and screening of community members will be coordinated by the district’s Community Education Services Department. The goal of this process is to address the needs and desires of the district and increase the effectiveness of using volunteers to further the district’s educational and curriculum goals. Community Education will work with principals and program directors/coordinators to identify school program needs and opportunities for the use of volunteers.

Background checks will be required for volunteers prior to the start date for volunteering If there is a break in volunteer service where a volunteer leaves his/her volunteer job for a period of time and returns again to volunteer, another background check must be completed.
