All other volunteers may be processed and approved at the school site by completing the Volunteer Agreement/Authorization Form (PDF). This procedure must be followed every time a volunteer changes school sites. The Volunteer Agreement/Authorization form must be completed before volunteers begin their service.
School personnel uses the Department of Justice database website to check the volunteer’s status as a registered sex offender. The only acceptable result is “Your search returned no results.”
The principal must authorize the volunteer. Principals may not authorize persons to volunteer if they indicate that they have been convicted of a violent or serious felony or if they are registered sex offenders. Persons who have been convicted of violent or serious felonies are not eligible to volunteer.
