This program was designed in 2009 as a means to allow Parents to bring their expertise, talent and love of learning into the school in which their children attend. It has expanded from parents to all stakeholders.
Teachers make requests of the AAT Coordinator who then pairs the teacher with an available Volunteer.
A Teacher request can consist of help in the classroom during a specific class i.e.: “I need a Volunteer for my classroom every Tuesday during the 8:40 – 9:10 period.”
A Teacher request can consist of 1:1 help on a certain topic i.e.: “I need a Volunteer who can work with my student on some extra reading material for his Social Studies class on Wednesdays from 10:55 – 11:35 until he gets caught up.”
The AAT Coordinator then publishes a weekly schedule for the Administrators, the Teachers and AAT Volunteers.
While every year is different based on the needs of our students, our AAT volunteer program has averaged 1400 hours of service annually since its inception!
To ensure and maintain the success of this rich program, it is crucial that AAT
