• Parent Participation Versus Volunteering
     Parent Participation
    If you are a parent who wants to participate with your child in school activities that are open to all parents for participation, you are not required to have a background check.  
    If you have any questions please contact your school’s administrators or your child’s classroom teacher regarding opportunities for parent participation.

    If you are a parent, a family member, or a community person desiring to serve as a school volunteer then you are required to have a background check.  The background check link for 21-22 will re-open Wednesday, August 25th. 

    Examples of how school volunteers may be used include field trip chaperones, classroom volunteers, assisting with enrichment opportunities,  etc. 

    Continue reading below to complete the background check process:



    • Volunteers are individuals who willingly undertake a service of an assigned task performed within our schools and are approved by the school administration.

    • Volunteers are business partners, senior citizens, family members, and community members who care about schools and want to be involved in the education of our children.

    • Volunteers participate in a classroom setting during the school day or outside the school setting as part of an extracurricular activity.

    • Volunteers are utilized in a variety of situations in schools, ranging from one time only to monthly, weekly or daily commitments.

    • Volunteers are placed in all grades, from pre-kindergarten to high school, and in all subject areas.

    • Volunteers play an important role in the success of our schools by providing an extra set of hands, helping increase community support for schools, and giving teachers more time to concentrate on instruction.


    Please know, volunteers will be welcome to return to schools for 21-22 under the following guidelines:

    • Complete the approval/background check process with HR
    • Must be appropriately masked at all times
    • Maintain social distance at 6 feet
    • Avoid engaging in large crowd gathering
    • Inform school staff of any need they have to isolate or quarantine
    • Must be performing a pre-determined / assigned responsibility


    If you have any questions about the Volunteer process, including background check or email responses from the BIB company, please call Human Resources at 704-260-5741.
