PoPP Responsibilities & Requirements

We thank our active group of Parents On Positivity Patrol (PoPP) and we are seeking more eager volunteers for the 2022-23 school year!

Below are the key responsibilities for PoPP volunteers:

  • Build positive relationships with students and help redirect them if they are making poor decisions that go against building policies and procedures.
  • Check restrooms on a consistent basis to ensure that students are using the restrooms for proper reasons.
  • Actively support and participate in the enforcement of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Volunteers will keep all communication with students and staff confidential unless it is a situation that needs counseling, administration or social worker attention (abuse, suicide, harming self or others, inappropriate behavior).
  • Volunteers will not entertain any questions from internal or external stakeholders that provide information regarding students, staff or events.
  • Volunteers will not post any information regarding events or situations that occur at the high school(s) on social media.

Members of PoPP are required to:

  • Have background checks.
  • Be approved as a Level 2 volunteer.
  • Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Be scheduled in the building according to availability.

Walkie Talkies and safety plan information are given to each volunteer and kept with them while on duty.
