District Volunteers
 
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Shaler Area School District. The Board of School Directors values the unique contributions made by parent and community volunteers to the educational programs of the Shaler Area School District. Accordingly, the Board encourages the use of parent and community volunteers, subject to certain requirements and procedures. In compliance with the state Act 153 and board policy, volunteers now are required to submit certain information and clearances prior to volunteering.

For the purpose of District policy and the state requirements, a volunteer is any individual who performs a service for the School District without compensation, remuneration or other consideration and who otherwise meets the requirements of this policy.

A volunteer must be at least 18 years of age.

A volunteer need not be a parent of a student enrolled in the School District.

A current School District student who serves as an assistant or who provides other volunteer assistance in support of a curricular, co- curricular or extra-curricular activity is not considered to be a volunteer for purposes of the District policy.
