The Palmyra-Eagle Area School District Board of Education recognizes that volunteers in the school are a valuable resource. The appropriate and effective utilization of volunteers assists the District in developing active partnerships with parents and the community. Specifically, volunteering will be used to broaden parental and community understanding of District needs and goals while promoting positive school-community relations. It is the intent of the Board to foster, support and encourage volunteer activities which support District programs.
The district wishes to encourage parental and community involvement in classrooms that would not jeopardize the safety of its students or staff members. Applicants who are denied based upon the results of the criminal background check will not be permitted to have the responsibility for other people’s children. The intent of this policy is not to be punitive to adults who may wish to volunteer. Rather, the primary and overall objective is to ensure the safety of students and staff members.
