WISE Volunteer Coordinator — FILLED
The PTO WISE Committee is looking for a new team member!  We are in need of a Volunteer Coordinator to take over beginning in the Fall 2018 and the role can be filled by either 1 person or the duties can be split between 2 people.  This position is essential to the day-to-day running of the WISE program during each session and WISE cannot run without it.  Responsibilities include:
1. Recruit volunteers for attendance and dismissal and be the point of contact for the volunteers throughout the session.
2. Maintain stock of WISE snacks.  Historically, snacks have been purchased and delivered by Costco.  The Coordinator is reimbursed for the cost of the snacks.
3. Communicate with parents and the WISE committee regarding student discipline concerns.
4. Update the WISE binder once per session.  This may include providing a list of WISE enrollees to teachers, preparing attendance lists, etc.
5. Monitor WISE e-mail for attendance and dismissal related concerns.
