Policy 205 Volunteers

Public Consultation and Policy Feedback

Public consultation on this policy is now open. Feedback will be received until January 14, 2022 at 4 pm EST.

It is the policy of the Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) to encourage and welcome the involvement of community and parent volunteers. School volunteers enhance learning opportunities for students as well as contribute to a positive school climate.

Further updates to the policy and procedures for school volunteers are shown in the draft documents as highlighted text. One of the proposed policy changes is the requirement for all school volunteers to provide a vulnerable sector check from the local police service prior to attending any volunteer activity with the board.

Policy 205 is important to students, parents, staff, school councils, and community members because school volunteers play an important role in maintaining a positive school climate by allowing many aspects of a school’s programming, both curricular and extra-curricular, to continue operating efficiently.
