Lincoln Public Schools is trying to make it easier for parents to volunteer.
This year, it started a three–level volunteer program and your level is based on how much contact you'll have with kids and supervision.
Two schools, Irving Middle School and Randolph Elementary have a pilot program where you sign up to volunteer on their web site.
This year we were trying to do it on paper and parents didn't really know what they were signing up for and it was kind of cumbersome process to get parents involved. Having it online, having it as easy as possible, I think that makes all the difference," mom and volunteer Lee Ann Heflebower said.
If signing up online works for these two schools, all of the LPS schools will do it next year. To sing up online to volunteer, you just go to the school's web site.
