In fulfilling this objective, the Franklin Pierce Board of Directors encourages the utilization of volunteers throughout the district to complement and supplement educational programs.

In working with volunteers, district staff shall clearly explain the volunteer's responsibility for supervising students in school, on the playground, and on field trips. On field trips, both students and volunteers are to be informed of the rules of student behavior and the means by which they are to be held accountable to those rules.
The superintendent shall be responsible for developing and implementing procedures for the utilization of volunteers. The selection and use of volunteers will be consistent with those policies and procedures as specified for unsupervised volunteers as specified in Policy 5005.
