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 dress and act in an appropriate manner at all times.
  • 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 is present. Programs involving spending one-on-one time with a student will be done so 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 in the buildings or on the grounds of any NEISD property.
  • I will not have contact will students outside of school hours without the knowledge and/or consent of the students' parents.
  • I understand that as long as I am an active volunteer the Volunteer Program will automatically run a background check on me every two years.
