School District 25 Policy
Adopted: October 12, 2004 Amended November 8, 2011
The purpose of this policy is to establish guidelines to operate a volunteer program for Fremont County School District No. 25. These procedures are to be used as guidelines for using volunteers within the District.
It is the policy of the Fremont County School District No. 25 to accommodate the services of volunteers in its programs or activities when those services benefit and enhance the resources and the students of the School or District. Additionally, this enhancement should not displace or replace existing employees. In those cases where cost containment has been applied and volunteers are being considered, the Board of Trustees and the superintendent shall review prior to assigning volunteers. Fremont County School District No. 25 will require and pay for a background check for volunteers serving in the District.
Building Principals of Fremont County School District No. 25 have the overall responsibility for the administration, coordination, and implementation of volunteer programs. Building Administrators, or their designees, may recruit volunteers, negotiate volunteer service agreements and approve such agreements for volunteers assigned to appropriate School or District programs.
