Volunteers are parents, guardians, grandparents, students, senior citizens and interested members of the community who care about children and want to help the school. They can be found in schools doing a variety of things - typing, tutoring, operating machines, listening, sharing a hobby; the possibilities are unlimited.
Volunteers support the professional staff in providing services for students. Volunteers must not be used to replace the professional staff. A volunteer always works under the direction and supervision of a teacher or other professional members of the school staff. A volunteer is never considered a substitute for a member of the school staff. A volunteer is never expected to perform professional services. The teacher is always responsible for the content and technique. The use of the volunteer should be at the discretion of the teacher.
