Anne Arundel County Public Schools encourages and rewards schools which develop strong volunteer support. Schools are asked to report the number of volunteer hours as part of this process. When a parent volunteers in the school or classroom, the hours are tracked automatically based on when s/he checks in and out of the office. However, many PTA volunteers put in hours of their time outside of the school building. Unless reported to the school, these hours frequently go unlogged. The school doesn’t receive credit, and the volunteers don’t get properly recognized for their efforts.
The PTA is providing this hours tracking tool in order to make it easier for our volunteers to log their activity. Please complete and submit the form whenever you participate in a school or PTA function. Note: you do NOT need to complete the form for in-school volunteer hours (if you checked in/out of the office) or for attending PTA meetings (the PTA provides the school with a list of those attending and the length of the meeting).
