with the 2011-2012 school year, the Buncombe County School volunteer
policy will change. Effective July 1, 2011 all volunteers MUST have an
approved volunteer application on file.
As a volunteer, you are an important part of the school community.
When you become a volunteer, your work takes on special significance --
though you are not part of the staff, you share the same
responsibilities that paid staff are held to while engaged with
School Volunteers may be parents, community members or senior
citizens. Volunteers can be utilized in a variety of situations in
schools, ranging from one time only, to monthly, weekly or daily
commitments. They may provide tutorial help, monitor lunchrooms, staff
libraries, etc. They might share a special skill, occupation or talent
with the students.
This new application process is for the safety of our students. We
will begin distributing the volunteer and background check applications
to our current volunteers soon. The personnel department will begin
processing these applications now so that we will have volunteers
approved and ready to begin volunteering for the upcoming school year.
