Volunteers will demonstrate a commitment to the Taktse International School Service Program mission at all times.
Volunteers shall not abuse students or staff in any way. Abuse of any kind is cause for immediate dismissal from the TISSP.
Volunteers will respond to students and staff with respect, consideration, and fair treatment regardless of sex, race, religion, culture, economic level of the family or disability.
Volunteers must appear neat, clean, and appropriately attired according to cultural norms. This includes time spent in town, exercising, and acting as a representative of Taktse International School. Smart, casual dress code is recommended.
Volunteers must not reveal confidential information about students, families, or other volunteers, unless required by law.
Profanity, inappropriate jokes, sharing inappropriate details of one’s personal life, and any kind of harassment in the presence of students, parents, staff, or other volunteers is prohibited.
Volunteers will portray a positive role model for students by maintaining an attitude of loyalty, patience, courtesy, tact, and maturity.
Volunteers should not give gifts to students, staff, or families. If unusual or unique circumstances arise, please refer to Principal Lauenstein for appropriate advice.
Volunteers should not use photos of the school or of the students for personal gain.
Volunteers that use social media and networking sites should not "friend" students if their profile contains adult or inappropriate language.
Volunteers will act in a caring, honest, respectful, and responsible manner consistent with the mission of TISSP.
Volunteers will not deliberately disobey explicit instructions given by the Taktse Principals, Head of School (upper/lower), or Resource Liaison. A lack of obedience may result in volunteer termination or risk the entire survival of the program.
Volunteers should keep in mind that any relationship they have with members of the Taktse International School community should be consistent with this code of conduct.
The Principal (or his/her representive) reserves the right to ask a Volunteer to leave Taktse, at their own expense, for not abiding by any of the above rules.
I understand the above list is not exhaustive, but are examples of expected codes of conduct. Any conduct believed to be inappropriate is grounds for immediate dismissal. I agree to follow the above code of conduct at all times during my participation at TIS.
