    General Guidelines for PCS Parent Guards

    匹兹堡中文学校家长巡视员实行办法

    简介:
    匹兹堡中文学校巡视员制度是由家长义工制度衍生而来。制定本制度是因学生人数多,教师与管理人员少,以及租借场地办学等实际情况。其目的是共同维护学校的生存和正常运作并为学生们创造一个良好的学习环境。

    谁必须做巡视员?
    经中文学校董事会决定,每个在学的家庭都必须有一位家长每学期做一个下午的巡视员服务, 但有以下情况者除外: 父母双方或一方为学校员工或董事会成员。

    巡视员主要职责:
    负责学校师生的安全;保护学校财产特别是教室内外的物品;维护学生纪律;帮助学校组织的各类活动。

    巡视员工作时间:
    无论有几个子女在中文学校就学,每个家庭每学期只要求做一个下午的巡视员服务。具体工作时间是1:50 PM-5:10PM。训导处会定期给家长们发送邮件,提醒家长通过预约表网上预约适合自己的时间和值班位置。如有特殊原因迟到、早退或缺席,您必须事先与训导处联系以便给您调换日子或做其它的安排。
    具体操作细则:
    1. 如果您负责一个教室:到校后立即去教室检查课堂里的布置, 并留守在教室里直到老师的到来;在老师缺席或外出(如课间休息)时负责维护教室里的秩序;在该课结束后帮助老师收拾教室或活动场所。务求回归原样。
    2. 如果您负责一个楼层:您必须巡视并负责该楼层的安全、安静和清洁;根据学生守则对学生行为进行引导和规范,并及时将异常情况报告到训导处。
    3. 如果您负责整个校园:您必须巡视校园并看护停泊的车辆;引导停车;盘问并阻拦可疑人员进入大楼;阻拦本校学生独自离开
    4. 如果您负责健身房或餐厅:您必须巡视并负责学生们的活动安全,室内清洁,帮助义卖或筹款,以及放学后的整理工作。
    签到方法:
    训导处负责巡视员的统一调配与登记。请家长在到校后速到位于餐厅的训导处签到,领取巡视员工作牌,并在您完成巡视员工作后回到训导处签离。 学校不时会举办一些书展、讲座、家长会、比赛及总结大会,请听从训导处新的安排。

    无犯罪记录:
    根据宾夕法尼亚州儿童保护服务法,学校志愿者需要向学校提供背景调查记录文件。详情请见: Background Clearance Rules (中文 English)

    其他事項:
    如果您对此巡视员实行办法有任何疑问或有不清楚的地方,请与训导处或校长及时联系。谢谢家长们对中文学校的大力支持!!


    General Guidelines for PCS Parent Guards

    Introduction:
    The PCS Parent Guard policy is an extension of the Parent Volunteer Service policy that has been implemented for years. Operating on the rented premises, PCS has a large number of students and classes but a limited number of teachers and administrative staff, which makes it necessary to call for the PCS parent guard services to ensure smooth operation of the school, and to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment for our students.

    Who Must Serve as a Parent Guard?
    PCS Board has decided to make the Parent Guard service mandatory for all families who have children enrolled in the school, except when both parents or one parent is committed to teaching, administration, or board member at the school.

    Major Responsibilities for a Parent Guard:
    A Parent Guard is responsible for safe-guarding the school and especially the students, protecting school properties from any damage, and restoring the assigned classroom to its original setting after each class.

    Hours of Duty for a Parent Guard:
    Each family is required to serve one afternoon per semester, regardless of the number of children enrolled by the family at PCS. Hours of duty are from 1:50 PM-5:10PM. Guidance will regularly email parents with parent guard signup form so that you can choose a time and a position suitable to you. If for any reason you expect to be late, absent, or leaving earlier, please notify the Guidance Office to reschedule or make other arrangement accordingly.
    Specific Job Descriptions:
    1. If you are assigned as a Classroom Guard: You must inspect and wait in the assigned classroom until the teacher arrives, maintain order in the classroom in the absence of the teacher, and help the teacher restore and tidy up the classroom after each or the third class is over, whatever applies.
    2. If you are assigned as a Floor Guard: You must patrol and keep the entire floor quite and clean, guide or discipline students according to our published PCS regulations, and report promptly to the Guidance Office any suspicious activity or abnormal situation.
    3. If you are assigned as a Campus Guard: You must patrol the campus to watch over our vehicles in the parking lot, guide vehicle parking, and stop strangers from entering the building and PCS students from leaving school alone.
    4. If you are assigned to work in the Cafeteria or Gym, you are responsible for the safety of the students, helping school to do fund-raising, and cleanup and restoring everything after school
    Where to Report (Sign In and Sign Out)?
    The Guidance Office is responsible for coordinating Parent Guards within the school and tracking parents who have not completed their service commitment. You must report to the Guidance Office located in the Cafeteria by signing in before proceeding to your assigned location and signing out after completing your Guard duties. During the hours of service you are required to wear a badge which has your responsibilities printed on. Occasionally the school has some other activities; you must follow the Guidance Office’s instructions if you are assigned to a different location.

    Clearances:
    Background clearances are required for school volunteers according to Pennsylvania’s Child Protective Services Laws. For details, please refer: Background Clearance Rules (中文 English)

    Please contact the Guidance Officer or the Principal if you have any questions. Thank you, PCS parents, for your continued support to us for your children’s education!!
