Volunteers


Volunteers are an important part of a school district.  There are a variety of ways volunteers can lend a helping hand to the students of our community and staff.

Whether a volunteer is helping students read, assisting in the library or supervising an activity, they are important members of the community and our district.  We value the time and effort volunteers take to help resource our teachers, administrators and support staff to better serve our students.

If you have any questions about volunteer opportunities or background check requirements, contact the school secretary at your child's school building. We appreciate your time and service and thank you for volunteering.





To provide clarification, the district is defining volunteers and visitors as listed below:

Visitors any parent or guest of a student, teacher, or administrator who attends a school-sponsored activity, including, but not limited to an assembly, spectator at an event during the school day, etc..  Visitors must check in at the main office and depart the school building at the end of the activity.  Visitors do not need to complete a background check.


Volunteers
 
are individuals who are not providing a service to the school or students. These individuals may be on campus to interact with their child(ren) or attend activities such as a classroom party.  Volunteer must check-in at the main office and depart the school building at the end of the activity.

Volunteers must be registered with a third-party contractor, Background Investigation Bureau (BIB)to conduct a comprehensive criminal and sex offender registry search.  There will be an annual fee, payable through the BIB website, due at time of registration. (Screened Volunteers do not need BIB, please see below)




Screened Volunteers are individuals who assist our school on an uncompensated basis and who may periodically be unsupervised while with students. These individuals may volunteer to regularly assist in the school office or library; mentor or tutor students; coach or supervise student activities before or after school; oasis reading; attend field trips or chaperone students on overnight trips.  

Pursuant to RSMo 168.133 screened volunteers must undergo a three (3) part background screening and complete district-required training. This will include fingerprinting good for six (6) years and Family Care Safety Registry good for life, however, volunteer application must be filled out annually for continued fingprinting.  Please follow the step below to start the process.

Screened volunteers do not need to register with BIB if approved for volunteer status.
