The Board believes that the education of students is a shared responsibility among its employees, parents and members of the community. The active involvement of parents and the appropriate use of volunteers as helpers has the potential to provide considerable benefit to our students and increase communications and positive relationships between schools and the community. Volunteers make valued and appreciated contributions to enhanced student success, the enjoyment of school and an enriched school climate.
Involvement of volunteers is encouraged in activities
for which the volunteer is qualified;
which do not interfere with or replace employees performing their regular duties; and
which are not in contravention of a collective agreement.
Volunteers shall perform tasks only under the supervision and guidance of district employees, and in alignment with appropriate health and safety protocols. The Board expects the use of volunteers in District schools to be supported by appropriate safeguards with respect to the selection and use of volunteers.
