  • ​Morning, Lunch, or Afternoon Duty:

All school sites grades K-12 require additional support surrounding student supervision during student drop off, lunch and student pick up. The needs and timing required for duty will differ for each school site. Available as needed throughout the District.

  • ​Reading to Students: 

Reading to our students offers behavior and academic progression, helps increase literacy and vocabulary, and exercises memory through comprehension. Reading enthusiasts are most valuable at all elementary and K-8 school sites. Available as needed throughout the District.

  • ​Parent Academy Support:

Parent Academy offers free courses and workshops to SFPS parents within the community. These classes are held at various schools throughout the District. Parent Academy needs assistance and support for their child care providers that work with children between the ages of 4-12. In addition, Parent Academy could use specific tutors within the classroom courses to tutor parents as it pertains to the volunteer’s field of expertise and experience.

  • ​Parent Organizations: 

A parent organization or association encourages parental participation in our schools. These entities are formulated by a combination of parents, teachers, administration and students to help increase parent engagement and often provide resources and funding for activities within the schools. Available as needed throughout the District.

  • ​School Advisory Council (SAC):

School Advisory Council is a collection of various people throughout the school & community who are engaged with the District at a school site. Members often include parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, community members & students. Parents and community members are encouraged to participate on a volunteer basis. The purpose of the SAC is to advocate on behalf of each school site to promote improvement and student support. Available as needed throughout the District.
