12.8 Adapting the Sunday School Organization to Local Needs

In a small ward or branch, members of the Sunday School presidency may also serve as teachers. Youth classes may be combined as needed. In a very small unit, the Sunday School president may be the only Sunday School leader and teacher. In this case, he teaches a Sunday School class for all members ages 12 and older. When possible, more leaders and teachers should be called.

In a small stake or a district, the Sunday School president may be the only stake or district Sunday School leader. When possible, counselors should be called. A stake Sunday School secretary may also be called.

For general information about adapting to local needs, see chapter 17.
