Volunteer

Lee County recognizes the importance and the positive impact volunteers can have in a school system. Many schools have states that the support of their volunteers was a vital part of their school’s success. The overall effectiveness and efficiency of a school is increased due to the work of its volunteers.

Volunteers can enhance a child’s learning by:

  • Assisting the classroom teachers by preparing materials, facilitating a learning center, and/or providing one-on-one teaching for individual students
  • Mentoring students to be confident in their academic and social abilities and to become productive citizens
  • Provide assistance to create a safe and secure environment for all students in other areas such as the media center, front office, and cafeteria.
  • Assisting with planning and chaperoning field trips, after-school interest groups or sports, and in-school events

 

Expectations Of Volunteers

As a school district, we have high expectations of our volunteers to be professional and respectful with the faculty and staff within the school and maintain confidentiality when discussing students.

  • All volunteers will go through a criminal history background, both state and national.
  • All volunteers will complete the Volunteer Orientation Program prior to going in a school.
  • Volunteers should be on time for their assignments and notify the school if running late or will be absent.
  • All volunteers should conduct themselves as role models for students by setting a good example in their behavior, appearance, and actions towards students, teachers, and other staff members.
