Statement of Appreciation XI-B-2 AR to BP 6801

Mr. Pike expressed appreciation for the gifts/donations accepted by the Board. Mr. Pike commented on the request for the Board to approve the components to be included in the development of the Administrative Regulation (AR) to Board Policy 6801, Instruction, Instructional Programs, Parent Involvement, Requirements for Volunteers. The recommended AR would include the following components within the context of the current policy: · Define a volunteer (parents visiting the campus for a conference or party, or a member of a parent organization, such as boosters, would not be considered a volunteer). · Require that all volunteers complete an application and be checked through the Megan's Law website. · Require that volunteers scheduled to work on campus with students an average of more than four hours per week over a four-week period, and those individuals serving as chaperones on field trips, be cleared via a background check. In addition to the above, all those on campus on a regular basis must comply with County Health Department requirements regarding TB clearance. Mrs. Martinez expressed appreciation to Mr. Pike and Dr. Lin for all their work. Mrs. Sciortino asked about the cost of a background check. Mr. Pike mentioned that the cost, depending on the type of background check, could range from $10-65 and would be sustained by the individual being checked. Mrs. Skipworth would like to be certain that any individual, including boosters, scheduled to work with students for an extended period of time be cleared via a background check. Dr. Bob Taylor was called on for comment. Dr. Taylor explained that typically the majority of booster parents do not have student contact time and much of their work is behind the scenes. Should a booster parent be in student contact for an extended period of time, Dr. Taylor said that school staff would make sure the proper procedure is followed. Mrs. Sciortino expressed appreciation to staff for the information and requested there be consistency across the District with regard to volunteers. MOTION WAS MADE BY MRS.
