These volunteers head back to school

In an era where Johnson County schools are asked to do more with less, one group is helping to make that possible: volunteers. Parents and grandparents and community members are taking time off work or coming out of retirement to assist in classrooms and after school programs. In the Shawnee Mission School District alone, 295 volunteers worked 7,478 hours in the 2012-13 school year.
