Volunteers. This policy was revised to be proactive in ensuring the
continued safety of your children while at school. The purpose of the
policy is to provide the safest educational environment possible for
your children by requiring volunteers who have direct contact with
students or work in our school on a regular basis to submit to a
background check. The policy is posted on our website.

our students must remain a priority. In addition, as economic times
tighten, we will look to increase our volunteerism thus bringing more
citizens into our schools. Please note the District will not be
responsible for the fees necessary to complete the background check.
results of all background checks will be held confidential and
individuals whose background check indicates they will not compromise
the safety of students or the district will be approved for volunteer
