    Volunteers should...

    • NEVER administer discipline – Behavior problems should only be addressed by teachers and administrators.
    • NEVER initiate physical contact with students. Never put your hands on a student, especially when you are angry.
    • NEVER contact students outside of the school setting.
    • NEVER correct staff members. See the principal with any concerns relating to staff members.
    • NEVER be alone with students.
  • Becoming a Volunteer

    When you assume the responsibility of volunteering in the school, you must agree to adhere to the code of ethics that binds together professionals working in the field of education. Volunteers must use a professional level of discretion, which prevents discussion of students, teachers or internal school affairs outside the classroom. Sensitive issues should always be referred to the teacher first, or to the principal, if they cannot be addressed at the classroom level. We all respect the need for confidentiality of students, staff, parents and families. If at any time you are aware of a situation that could result in the endangerment of a child or children, please inform the classroom teacher, school counselor, or our campus administrator.
