How To Organize a School Volunteer Program in Individual Schools and Suggested Volunteer Aids.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA.
The School Volunteer Program of Los Angeles is designed to assist teachers in providing more individualization and enrichment of instruction; to increase children's motivation for learning, to provide an opportunity for interested community members to participate effectively in the school's program, and to strengthen school-community relations through this positive participation. The purpose of this pamphlet is to describe the general operation of the program and to introduce a variety of materials and guidelines related to the following topics: (1) recruitment and selection procedures, (2) preservice orientation and inservice training of school volunteers, (3) program administration and organization (including a differentiation of the responsibilities of staff coordinator, classroom teacher, school volunteer chairman, volunteer area coordinator, and school volunteer); and (4) suggested areas of service (differentiating responsibilities according to services requiring minimal, average, or special skills or training). The pamphlet includes a list of publications available from the School Volunteer Office--publications designed to be of practical value in program design and implementation and to treat a wide variety of topics (For example, "Interviewing School Volunteers,""School Volunteers Handbook," or "How I Can Help Children Learn To Read.")
