Room parent responsibilities vary depending on the teacher. Your responsibilities will likely include: - Sending emails to parents on behalf of the teacher- Organizing parties for occasions such as Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc. - Coordinating classroom volunteers- Communicating information to families and coordinating activities on behalf of BEST at various times throughout the year, such as Teacher Appreciation Week
Being a room parent does not mean that you will do all the work! Your job is to coordinate the efforts of ALL parents/families. The Room Parent Coordinators will place volunteers in each classroom based on the following:
- If there are more than two volunteers, a lottery will be conducted by the Room Parent Coordinators. - If there are more than two volunteers and one of the volunteers was the room parent for the same child last year, that volunteer will be excluded from consideration this year. - If there are more than two volunteers and one of the volunteers has also volunteered to be a room parent for another child, that volunteer will be placed in the other classroom.
If you volunteer, please make sure you have an updated CORI on file at the Davis/Lane offices. New regulations require all volunteers to submit a CORI form every school year.
If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the Room Parent Coordinators:
