WHAT IS THE ROLE OF STAFF?
Staff members at a Sudbury school act as role models of successful adulthood, facilitate student access to resources, and perform a wide variety of administrative and maintenance tasks. Staff ensure that the school lives up to its philosophy, anchoring its culture to values of freedom, respect, responsibility, and trust. Honoring the choices of students, they rely on the school’s judicial system to effectively resolve rule infractions.
Staff duties include instruction and assistance only as requested; participation in the democratic structures of the school; outreach (e.g., marketing, social media); parent support; and upholding the Sudbury model of education.
To better understand the role of staff at a Sudbury School you can read the article "The Art of Doing Nothing" by The Sudbury Valley School co-founder Hanna Greenberg.
