It is the policy of the School Committee to encourage volunteer efforts in the schools. Parents, business representatives, senior citizens, and other community volunteers are recognized as important sources of support and expertise to enhance the instructional program and vital communication links with the community. The volunteer program will be coordinated in cooperation with building administrators.
Parents who volunteer to work in any given school for a portion of the week must be interviewed by the building principal. The principal will require two letters certifying that the volunteer is of sound moral character. A list of accepted volunteers will be forwarded to the office of the Deputy Superintendent for filing.
