Volunteers provide a valuable service to the Tuscaloosa City Schools by assisting with operational functions and by being role models for the students. Typical assignments for volunteers include the reinforcement of instruction and assisting with non-instructional student activities. Volunteers must always be under the direct supervision of the certified personnel. The principal or designee shall recruit, screen, direct pre-service orientation and supervise the volunteers. The assignment of volunteers shall be made by the principal or designee.
In order to provide students with a safe environment and to allow for a variety of opportunities for volunteering, volunteer participation is classified into three tiers. Depending upon the tier, certain processes must be completed by district staff prior to potential volunteers being given permission to serve. All volunteers will be screened annually.
