Why we Track Volunteer Hours
Here is the district’s policy on volunteer hours and why they track them.
“The District values the diversity of volunteer activity in the community, whether it is at home, in the community, or in the classroom. Accounting for such volunteer hours is essential since it impacts issues such as funding, program continuation, and communication. For example, many grants and federally funded programs require an accurate reflection of volunteer hours, and the State of Texas requires public school districts to facilitate parental involvement in their children’s education.”
