The teacher was the one who initiated a request for a RE-SEED volunteer to work with them in the classroom. The teacher was asked to have the acknowledgement signed by the principal giving permission for the volunteer to work in the classroom if the district or school had not given blanket permission. We then began the search for a volunteer who was a good candidate for the needs of the teacher. Sometimes this was a quick process and sometimes the teacher would need to wait for a new volunteer to be trained. We kept the teacher informed as to our progress in locating a suitable volunteer. See below for the training schedule that volunteers went through.
