STUDENT VOLUNTEERS FOR SCHOOL & PUBLIC SERVICE
The Board of Education recognizes the social and scholastic benefits derived from student participation in various community-sponsored activities. The Board, therefore, fosters the volunteer services of students in school activities such as helping students, aiding teachers or other instances whereby the general welfare of the school is improved, and in such activities outside the school as visiting hospitals, nursing homes, etc. However, neither an individual nor the school as a whole shall be permitted to use school time in working on community-sponsored projects unless such an undertaking is deemed to contribute to the educational program. The administration has the responsibility to develop procedures for community groups to request student involvement during school hours, as well as guidelines for the consideration of such request.
