Volunteer Aides in Public Schools. Policies and Procedures in Oregon and Washington.
Staley, Gerald J.
A survey of school districts in Washington and Oregon with an average daily membership of 5,000 or more indicated that little thought had been given to the legal and professional problems involved in the use of volunteer aides. This document provides examples of the best guidelines and procedures for programs intended to give adult assistance to the teacher, with a clear definition of the responsibilities of both the teacher and the aide, and a listing of the duties which the aide can undertake. A genuine need for the program should exist, with the support of the teachers, and when this is established the principal can decide on the number of aides required and how they are to be used. Details are given in the appendixes of the teacher's request for an aide, guidelines for the volunteer chairmen, guidelines for the aides, volunteer aide application form, the orientation and training of aides, guidelines for teachers and principals, annual evaluation of the aides by teachers, principals and school chairmen, performance self-evaluation by the aide, and application for a community resource volunteer.
