Volunteers play an important and valuable role in the Ross Valley School District. Students, teachers, staff, parents and the community benefit when volunteers share their talents, experience and resources. Volunteers support students in a variety of ways, including assisting in the classroom, on the playground and/or during lunch, as field trip drivers and chaperones, at school events, in afterschool activities/sports and a variety of special programs.
Family members may volunteer at a student’s school. For anyone other than a student’s family members who wish to volunteer, please contact Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) to become part of the Marin County School Volunteers (MCSV) program (visit this link for more information http://www.mcsv.org/).
