Administering a School Volunteer Program. An Individualized Volunteer Education Module.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL. Dept. of Staff Development.; Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
The module presented here is a performance-based, individualized, programed learning activity. As he proceeds through the document, the administrator-participant can develop and practice specific activities in a simulated setting with colleagues until mastery of a design for using the program in his particular school can be demonstrated. The concept inherent to the module is cyclical -- with an interplay of knowing and doing providing for instructional input, which is succeeded by application and practice experiences. At each stage of development, the user can check his progress by means of a feedback process. The module is organized to assist the administrator in designing and reacting simultaneously to the designs of others. The longrange or terminal module objective calls for a program that results in 50 percent of an administrator's teachers demonstrating a positive attitude toward the use of volunteers by voluntarily requesting, planning for, and supervising a school volunteer. Successful participation in the module activities should produce administrative competencies in identifying the need and designing the specifications for a school volunteer program, developing a strategy for utilizing volunteer services, and assessing the effectiveness of the strategy employed according to minimum specified criteria.
