Community Resource Persons and Volunteers

The School Board encourages the use of resource persons and volunteers to:

  1. Increase students’ educational attainment,
  2. provide enrichment experiences for students,
  3. increase the effective utilization of staff time and skills,
  4. give more individual attention to students, and
  5. promote greater community involvement.

Resource persons and volunteers may be used:

  1. For non-teaching duties not requiring instructional judgment or evaluation of students;
  2. For supervising study halls, long distance teaching reception areas used incident to instructional programs transmitted by electronic media (such as computers, video, and audio), detention and discipline areas, and school-sponsored extracurricular activities;
  3. To assist with academic programs under a certificated teacher’s direction and with the administration’s approval;
  4. As a guest lecturer or resource person under a certificated teacher’s direction and with the administration’s approval; or
  5. As supervisors, chaperones, or sponsors for non-academic school activities.

The Superintendent shall establish procedures for securing and screening resource persons and volunteers. No person who is a “child sex offender,” as defined by the Child Sex Offender and Murderer Community Notification Law, or has otherwise been convicted of a felony, shall be used.
