The Volunteer Services Program is facilitated through the Community Relations Department. All District volunteers are considered education volunteers. Regardless of their level of participation (direct or indirect, building or District), their primary goal is to provide support for the educational needs of students. Education volunteers contribute support in several ways: individual building and community partnership programs; field experiences; as community resources speakers; as District-level volunteers. Volunteer involvement is tracked at each building and through the Community Relations Office.
During the 2014-15 school year, 6,765 volunteers contributed 143,629 recorded hours of service. Volunteers outnumbered staff by more than 2 to 1 and represented all life stages. Parents made up 44% of volunteers, while 42% were adults with no children enrolled in our schools, 8% were students, and 6% were senior citizens.
