Extending Volunteer Programs in Schools.
Hedges, Henry G.
Documented here is a project involving three extensions or adaptations for using volunteers in schools. The first adaptation involves a plan for meeting certain major needs of a secondary school with volunteer help. This plan includes components designed to reorganize the secondary school curriculum to allow some of the students to study aspects of early childhood education and apply these studies through service in nearby elementary schools. The second adaptation studies the role of volunteer activities in a school wherein a modified differentiated staffing plan is already in effect. The outcome of this study is a description of the roles or functions performed by the various levels of staffing, including volunteers. The third adaptation deals with a plan for increasing the amount of volunteer help in an individualized reading program that led to a plan for vertical integration of classes. The report contains one section with chapters that deal separately in considerable detail with the three programs, present evaluation data, and offer suggestions for further implementation and adaptation. An appendix provides a general bibliography, the operational model, and other materials currently being disseminated to schools desiring to establish volunteer programs.
