About Volunteering in Medford Schools (VIMS)Many parents and interested adults have shown a desire to help in the process of public education. It was because of this, and the seemingly endless number of duties and tasks involved in the education of students, that VIMS was created. By working with students, teachers and principals, volunteers in the Medford School District will enrich the educational opportunities available to all students.Our school, due to being a small school relies heavily on volunteers to be a part of our school family. There are many opportunities to take part in many diverse areas.Through this program:
1.Volunteers gain first-hand knowledge of what is happening in the schools and become more proficient at helping their own children.
2.Teachers receive more planning and teaching time, therefore increasing the quality of instruction for all students.
3.Medford schools gain support and enrichment through the community's involvement in the education of its young people.
Please consult the VIMS Handbook below for further details. To become a VIM please fill out the Online Application by clicking on this link to get started. Contact your child's school if you have any questions.
