Volunteers are essential to the success of Fairfax County Public Schools. Many enriching and worthwhile experiences are afforded to our children through the volunteer help from parents. With this support, teachers are able to provide more direct instruction.
Parents interested in volunteering time and services are requested to contact the PTA volunteer coordinator and the classroom teacher. Please remember when you are coming to volunteer this is not a time that teachers are able to meet with you. If you have a concern that you wish to discuss with your child’s teacher please arrange a time for a meeting through e-mail or a phone call.
Volunteers are strongly discouraged from bringing younger children with them when volunteering. Volunteers bringing very young children with them are usually not able to adequately focus on the educational process for which they volunteered. There simply are too many distractions for them, for their very young children, as well as for our students, for much meaningful education to take place.
As per Policy 2730.1: All employees and volunteers shall be expected to maintain personally identifiable student information, whether oral, written, or automated, in a confidential manner. Personally identifiable student information shall be disclosed within the school division only to individuals who have a legitimate educational interest and a bona fide need for access to the information. Such information shall not be otherwise disclosed within or outside the school division without appropriate consent or as otherwise authorized by law. For purposes of these requirements, volunteers shall be held to the same standards as are employees.
Please join our PTA! It is such an important part of our school community. Every dollar raised goes directly back to your child’s education. The PTA assists with paying for field trips, SMARTBoards, computers, printers, books, classroom materials, playground equipment, family celebrations, and much more!!
