The Board of Directors is committed to providing quality education for all Clover Park School District students and recognizes the need to use appropriate and available resources to accomplish this goal. Community members, including Clover Park families, business leaders, and military personnel, who voluntarily contribute their time and talents to improve and enrich Clover Park schools are valuable assets.

The Board of Directors encourages participation of individuals in schools and in the central office and/or area offices, to perform appropriate tasks in relation to their skills and provide adjunctive assistance during and after school hours under the direction of and supervision of professional personnel.

The work of volunteers will supplement and in no way supplant or replace the work of the professional and/or support staff.  Volunteers are not to be left alone with a student or students out of sight of a teacher or paraprofessional.

The school administration, consistent with policy 5005, is responsible for the recruitment, initiation of the Washington State Patrol background check, training, coordination of work, and monthly reporting of volunteer names and hours to the district designee. Volunteers will work at the request of teachers, administrators and other designees.

The development and management of the volunteer program is under the direction of the superintendent and those to whom responsibility is delegated by the superintendent.
