Assigned only to those schools whose principals and teachers request their services, the volunteers are an auxiliary, supplementary resource. Areas of the program described include history and philosophy, administration, financing, recruitment, screening, training, supervision, liability insurance, the reading help program, the English as a second language program, and the early childhood program. A listing of materials produced through the program is included. (HOD)
