Volunteer Code of Conduct

  • As a Volunteer, I agree to abide by the following Code of Conduct: 

    • I will sign in at the designated sign in station and sign out when my duties are complete.

    • I will wear a volunteer name badge or identification provided by the school each time I visit. I will remain at my volunteer station/assignment for the duration of my volunteer shift.

    • I will dress appropriately for my volunteer assignment and will act in a professional manner at all times toward staff and other volunteers.

    • I will maintain confidentiality outside of school and will share with teachers and/or school administrators any concerns that I may have related to student welfare and/or safety.

    • Whenever possible I will abide by the “three person rule.” I understand that whenever possible a child is not to be left alone with an employee, volunteer or other district representative, unless a 3rd party present. Programs involving spending one on one time with a student will be done in a supervised setting.

    • I will not disclose, use or disseminate student photographs or personal information regarding students to anyone.

    • I agree to not transport students. Volunteers are not authorized to transport students, staff or other volunteers unless given special authorization through the Risk Management Department.

    • I agree not to smoke on the grounds of any NEISD Property.

    • I will not have contact with students outside of school hours without the knowledge and/or consent of the student’s parents.

    • I understand that the Volunteer Program will automatically resubmit my criminal history record check every two years.

    Failure to uphold any guideline or standard may result in dismissal from the NEISD Volunteer Program and may result in Criminal Prosecution.
