SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS


The Saco School Department recognizes that community members can provide valuable services to the schools by sharing their time, talents and experience. An effective volunteer program allows students to benefit from individual attention, provides enrichment opportunities that supplement the regular educational program, allows teachers to focus on teaching and learning by relieving them of non-teaching tasks, provides interested community members an opportunity to become directly involved with education, and strengthens the relationship between school and community.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age unless their volunteer work is part of a class, is done to fulfill a service learning or community service requirement for graduation, or is done by a recognized student organization.

Volunteers may provide assistance by:
A. Tutoring students on a one-to-one or small group basis under the direct supervision of the classroom teacher;
B. Using their special musical, artistic or other talents to provide enrichment experiences and extend student learning;
C. Reading to children;
D. Playing instructional games;
E. Providing services in libraries, lunchrooms and playgrounds;
F. Accompanying students on field trips;
G. Assisting teachers in assembling instructional materials; and
H. Assisting in school plays, music programs and other extracurricular activities.


Persons interested in volunteering time or services should review the full School Board Volunteer Policy and contact the building principal.


Prospective volunteers will be required to complete a written application/registration form.
