Volunteering in Deer Valley School District
Volunteerism is encouraged and supported in Deer Valley. The coordinated efforts of educators, parents and community members are key to ensuring student success. We are grateful to the thousands of volunteers who work in classrooms, on playgrounds and in school offices daily.
The major goal of our volunteer program is to assist schools in providing the best possible education for each student. Volunteers are needed to accomplish the following objectives:
- Provide teachers with more time to work with students
- Enrich the curriculum and learning opportunities for students
- Provide individual attention to those children needing additional assistance
- Promote a school-home-community partnership for quality education.
