Volunteer Help

We have such wonderful staff at Mabry. They are always very quick to go above and beyond to help children. We have several paraprofessionals who have come in early or stayed late to help children prepare for up-coming tests or projects. Recent changes in federal law will prevent them from doing this. No hourly employees may work beyond their 8 hour work day. No hourly employees may volunteer at their place of employment beyond their regular work day.

It was very difficult for me to tell these wonderful ladies this news. They were all very heartsick. If you have strong feelings one way or the other about this new federal law, I would encourage you to let you Congressmen and Senators know. I do not think anyone saw the adverse impact this law would have on children at school.
