This field study provides an experience log with a summary of all activities. In addition, various documents and communications to parents are included. Four handbooks are presented that were developed through this year long study. Additional suggestions are presented that are helpful in developing a parent volunteer program.

The experience and knowledge gained through this study was immeasurable. The handbooks created will serve: (1) as a guide to the classroom teacher and the volunteer; (2) to establish procedures in establishing a volunteer program; (3) to provide information about the overall score of a volunteer program; (4) and finally, to provide a source of public relations.

A volunteer program is a valuable asset to any school, not only through the services provided, but through the favorable public relations it generates. Lay participation will provide effective schools.
