Becoming a School Volunteer
Commencing in the Fall of 2011, Glassboro will be providing a comprehensive Volunteer Training Program for all participants who are interested in serving as a parent volunteer. One significant vehicle for parent involvement is a structured volunteer program. When children enter Glassboro Public Schools, teachers and parents must become partners in facilitating children’s learning. One of the most important things we can do for children is to allow them to see parents and teachers working together. This helps children realize that there is a bond between home, community and school. Parent involvement in schooling has shown to have strong and long-lasting effects on children’s school performance and to benefit the development of their language, self-help, motor skills, adaptive and basic school skills.
Public School Volunteers are parents, grandparents or caring adults who assist teachers and staff with the day-to-day activities involved in providing a balanced education for our students. Our district engages parents as an important part of a team that strives to ensure that each and every student succeeds.
