Volunteer & Chaperone
Help Make a Difference in Our School Community
Parents, guardians, grandparents and community members are invited to volunteer in our schools through the Volunteer Program. Volunteers with the program are offered the opportunity to respond to requests for help that are received from teachers, librarians, administrators, the PTOs, and other members of our school district family.
A variety of activities become available during the school year and sometimes during the summer. Most requests are for volunteers during the school day, while a few activities take place after school or in the evening.
Under Pennsylvania law, ALL school volunteers must meet certain requirements, including those who volunteer in extracurricular activities. Therefore, all STSD volunteers must be members of the Volunteer Program to ensure the safety of our students and staff, and for compliance of the law.
Detailed information and required forms can be found in the Volunteer Manual. The Volunteer Manual can be found in the District and School Offices, or downloaded from the link on the left.
If you have questions about the Volunteer Program please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 717-657-5100 ext. 54000 or email@example.com.
Under Pennsylvania law, all school volunteers must meet certain requirements, including those who volunteer in extra-curricular activities. Therefore, ALL chaperones must be a member of the Volunteer Program to ensure the safety of our students and staff, and for compliance with the law. To become a member, please complete the required documents by downloading the Volunteer Manual or by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chaperones must be:
- Susquehanna Township School District employees; or
- Any other adult approved by the School Administrator, Coach, Sponsoring Employee or Teacher-In-Charge of the trip who meets all eligibility requirements to volunteer before the trip is scheduled for departure.
The primary reason for chaperones is to supervise a group of students. Chaperones are responsible for students and expected to stay with their assigned group and monitor behavior for the entire trip from departure time until they return to the school or another agreed upon location.
Chaperones are responsible for enforcing the Student Success Manual (Student Code of Conduct) and other relevant school policies.
Chaperones must adhere to established basic guidelines for school-sponsored functions and additional guidelines, as may be developed by the individual teams.
Chaperones are responsible for attending any designated information or procedural meeting prior to and during the trip as are required by the School Administrator, Coach, Sponsoring Employee or Teacher-In-Charge.
