VI-13: Community Resource Persons and Volunteers
North Sanpete School District
Board Policy with Guidelines
|Policy Number: VI-13
Effective Date: 12/16/1982
Subject: Community Resource Persons and Volunteers
The Board of Education recognizes that one of the greatest resources of the school is to be found in the people of the community who have special knowledge and particular talents to contribute to the school program. The Board, therefore, encourages the use of community resources and citizens to assist in furthering the educational program. Each principal should study the needs of his/her individual school, survey the resources available in the school community, weigh their probable usefulness, and then present to the Superintendent, for approval, any plans that the principal may develop for using these community resources.
The Board recognizes that volunteers can make many valuable contributions to our schools. The Board endorses a Volunteer Program in the North Sanpete Schools, subject to suitable regulations and safeguards. Appropriate recognition of volunteer services shall be made annually.
