Welcome to our school. We are thankful that you have chosen to volunteer your services to our schools. With the support of volunteers such as you, the opportunity to meet the individual achievement needs of each child is greatly increased. The Santee School District Governing Board and Superintendent encourages parents/guardians and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with our students. Community volunteers in our schools enrich the educational program and strengthen our schools’ relationships with homes, businesses, public agencies and private institutions. It takes an entire community to educate our youth. Caring members of our community bring new energies and resources into our schools. Schools draw support from their communities through the work you do in our schools. Your commitment to volunteer and work in our schools is greatly appreciated. This handbook is designed to provide you with practical information that will assist you in your volunteer placement and the work you do. It is our goal to support your volunteer work so that the time you spend with our students is worthwhile for you as well as our students. Once again, thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of our students.
