There were 7,240 registered volunteers in the Cedar Rapids Community School District during the 2013-14 school year. These individuals generously contributed 131,881 hours of time in support of education. Calculated at the District’s lowest para wage last year ($11.50/hour) this support of education is a savings of $1,516,631. The volunteer workforce outnumbered staff by more than 2 to 1!
The demographic distribution of school district volunteers continues to be diverse: 49% are parents of students; 35% are non-parents (individuals who do not have a child enrolled in the reporting school and are neither senior citizens nor youth); 5% are senior citizens; and 11% are youth.
The Volunteer Services Program is coordinated through the Community Relations Department of the District.
