The Butler Area School District will work to clarify the administrative procedures required for school visitors and classroom volunteers.
After hearing from numerous parents that the policies are confusing and enforced differently at different schools across the district, the school board determined that a change to policy is not needed at this time.
Instead, staff guidelines will be more closely aligned with the policy to make compliance easier for everyone involved. In the past, changes to state law requirements have resulted in expense and frustration for visitors and volunteers.
In addition, information on this subject on the district’s website will be streamlined and clarified to eliminate confusion and limit misunderstandings.
