School District 25 Policy

Volunteer Policy

Policy 2007
Adopted: October 12, 2004 Amended November 8, 2011


Purpose:

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.

Objectives:

  1. To obtain the services of volunteers to perform activities and tasks that would not normally be provided if it was not for the efforts of volunteers. The services provided by volunteers are to support and supplement those of the regular staff of Fremont County School District No.25.
  2. To improve the level and quality of service provided by the District.
  3. To broaden and enrich the students' experiences through interaction with volunteers.
  4. To provide parents and community members with an opportunity to learn more about the operation, objectives and programs of the District.
  5. To strengthen school-community relations by providing interested parents and community members a chance to effectively participate in programs of the School and District.

Policy Statement:

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.

Responsibilities:

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.
