While the District acknowledges the importance of volunteerism in its school, serving as a volunteer in the District is a privilege. The District shall conduct background checks on all persons who request to serve as a volunteer with the District. Background checks will be conducted through appropriate State agencies or other applicable means. The results of the background checks will be reviewed by the District Administrator or designee.
The District Administrator or designee shall have sole discretion to determine whether information obtained through the background check process disqualifies an individual from serving as a volunteer within the District, or may place restrictions on the type of volunteer service the individual may provide.
Parents of students enrolled in the District shall be subject to the same requirements to qualify as volunteers; however, parents deemed not qualified to serve as volunteers will not be prevented from otherwise actively participating in their children's education. The District Administrator or designee shall meet with the affected parents to discuss their scope of participation in the programs and events of the District.
Volunteers will need to complete both the Background Authorization and Disclosure Form and the Volunteer Agreement. Completed forms need to be turned into the Human Resources Supervisor, located in the District Office, for processing and approval.
Due to the turnaround time, volunteers may be asked to submit to a criminal background check well in advance of volunteering at or for the school. Under no circumstance will an individual be permitted to volunteer prior to the completion of a criminal background check and approval by the District.
