Being a cooperatively run organization, Bonnie Doon Playschool requires each family to fill one volunteer position per child registered. Thus, families with two (or more) children will potentially have two (or more) volunteer positions.
The opportunity to sign up for volunteer positions will occur at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is expected to take place in June 2020. All families must attend this meeting or send a representative in their place. Board elections also occur at the AGM. Parents are asked to familiarize themselves with Board and Volunteer roles prior to attending the AGM. Please refer to Appendix A for a description of the Board and Appendix B for Volunteer positions in the Parent Handbook.
Failure to fulfill volunteer duties will result in the withdrawal of Volunteer Commitment deposits.
Parents are asked to notify the Volunteer Coordinator in the event of extended absences (i.e., more than two weeks). They are also asked to make arrangements for alternative duty dates or to find a replacement in the event that these absences conflict with their volunteer duties.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
A Board of Directors, consisting of volunteer parents of children currently enrolled at the school, manages the business and affairs of Bonnie Doon Playschool. The Board serves on a volunteer basis, without pay. The Board is guided by Policies and By-Laws that provide parameters for operation.
