Some schools require students to complete a certain number of volunteer hours every school year. Accordingly, Django-SIS allows school staff to keep track of a student’s volunteer hours, sites, and site supervisors. Tracking volunteers works similar to other modules in terms of adding and storing data.
Adding a Volunteer¶
Locate the Volunteer_track module of Django-SIS from your main dashboard screen. Once found, select add by the volunteers option. The following page will be displayed:
Under student begin typing in the name of a student you will be adding as a volunteer. A list of students will then show in a drop down box. Once your selection has been made, the remaining fields are optional- hours required, notes, sites. Select Save.
Volunteers will be stored under the Volunteers heading along with their progress in number of volunteer hours completed.
Add a Site for Volunteers¶
Sites refer to the physical location of where students will be volunteering. In the volunteer track module, the volunteer sites option is for school staff to create a new volunteer session for a student without the student submitting.
From the Volunteer Tracking header select +Add by the Sites option.
Next, you’ll see the image below directing you to fill out basic site information. Save your changes.
Assign a Site Supervisor¶
At the familiar Volunteer Tracking module, select +Add next the Site supervisors option.
From this screen, add your information in about the supervisor. Note: only the NAME field is required, although ideally you could set the site of where this person is in charge of at this screen as well.
Add Volunteer Site¶
Selct +Add by the Add Volunter Site on the Volunteer Tracking module. Clicking add will lead to the following screen:
Here, you may enter the appropiate information in to register hours for a particular student.
Once the hours have been registered, you will see this reflected in the volunteer dash.
