V-15: Student Volunteers for School and Public Service
North Sanpete School District
Board Policy with Guidelines
|Policy Number: V-15
Effective Date: 12/16/1982
Subject: Student Volunteers for School and Public Service
The Board encourages the utilization of student volunteers in the educational program (e.g., student librarians, student office helpers, etc.) and in useful community services. However, student volunteers must be capable of carrying out the additional load without endangering their academic achievement. Therefore, all student volunteers shall be expected to maintain their grades, attend all classes, and recognize that the activity to which they are volunteering their services is secondary to their primary goal of getting an education.
Teachers and members of the community are encouraged to check with the guidance counselor and the principal before students are sought for volunteer help, to make sure that the students can afford academically to undertake the additional responsibility.
