Whenever you volunteer at the school or school events, register and record your time spent volunteering. Documentation is used for audits, grant requests, and to document your commitment to serving at least 12 hours each school year. Parents receiving tuition assistance are required to volunteer 24 hours during the school year. An application fee discount may be offered to parents who complete volunteer hours.

What is AFT?

Parents and family members work with faculty, staff, and administration to form the Association of Families and Teachers (AFT). Parent volunteers govern AFT.

Who is a member of AFT?

All Bynum School staff members and families are members of the AFT. Membership does not require annual dues.
