Volunteer Application Process
Our volunteers do great work in supporting our students and we appreciate all the time and effort that is put into enhancing our students’ learning experience. This year we are tightening up our volunteer process. We want to be clear about the volunteer process and what is needed from our volunteers. From this point forward, anyone volunteering with our students must first fill out a volunteer application. It is a simple application giving permission for a criminal records check. This process should be completed in full before anyone works with or is around children, and that includes field trips. As always, it is our practice that volunteers are under the immediate supervision of a licensed professional employee of the school district, and will not have unsupervised contact with students. If you plan to volunteer now or in the future, please stop by the school office or look on our website under forms for the application. (Only the 1st, 2nd and 3rd pages need to be filled out). We urge volunteers to fill out the application as soon as possible as the paperwork turnaround takes 3 to 5 days.
Here are a few examples of people who need to complete this form:
Classroom volunteers (including specials)
Four Winds volunteers
Field trip chaperones/drivers(along with the driver checklist)
Work study students
6th grade field trip (This process will be different since it is an overnight trip, and needs to get started well in advance of the trip)
Act 46 is the State of Vermont's new education reform law. It has been the topic of conversation around our school community as it will impact school governance and our school budget. For your convenience we have provided the link on the AOE website regarding Act 46.
