Volunteer Policy

Beginning 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 students.
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.
