Volunteering at Legacy– Legacy Academy relies on parental involvement to ensure smooth daily operations. Each family is expected to donate a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer time per year (4 hours per month); single parents, a minimum of 20 hours per year (2 hours per month). Each family also has the option of giving $10 to the school in lieu of one volunteer hour. Volunteer hours will be prorated for those families enrolling during the school year. All volunteers who work with students must complete a background check and pay $7 to the front office to cover the cost. Submitting the background check information will count towards 1 hour of volunteer time. BACKGROUND CHECK
