Procedures for Volunteering in the Area I Schools If interested in volunteering at an elementary or a middle school, complete the School Volunteer form and return to the school’s guidance counselor. If interested in volunteering at Aiken or South Aiken High, go to each school’s web site for contact information. Attend a volunteer orientation. All volunteers must read the board policy provisions applicable to volunteer interactions with students and sign that they acknowledge the conduct expectations of volunteers.
Volunteer Responsibilities Volunteers are responsible for attending an orientation prior to working with staff and students. Every volunteer must register in the main office upon arrival. Volunteers will be given a badge upon signing in which should be worn at all times during service. At the end of the volunteer time, the volunteer should report to the office, return the badge and sign out. Volunteers will be given a tour of the school. The tour will include locations of exits, adult restrooms, workrooms, and designated parking. Outside arrangements must be made for child care of non-school age children instead of bringing them to school during volunteer time. Volunteers work under the supervision of staff or an appointed representative and should never be left unattended with students.
Additional Responsibilities Teachers have an established method of maintaining classroom discipline. All discipline is the responsibility of the classroom teacher or staff member. All schools are cell phone free zones. Cell phones must remain off when entering the school. Volunteers must follow the same procedures as staff during emergency drills and should be familiar with all procedures. The staff is responsible for instruction of students during the school day and should not be interrupted while teaching. Volunteers should be willing to perform a wide range of assigned tasks.
