Volunteering - A Work of Heart

 

                                    

Volunteers Needed
                

 

Volunteers are a vital resource for our schools and bring much-needed assistance, experience and knowledge to our school communities. A volunteer for a single event that takes place for the duration of one day only does not need to submit an application but must check in through the front office with a school administrator and present a valid driver's license.                                                      

Purpose of the School/Office Volunteer Program

  • Assist in classrooms, thereby allowing teachers to attend to students in need of extra help
  • Support school personnel in meeting the needs of students more effectively
  • Strengthen school/home/community relations by engaging parents and the community as school volunteers
  • Provide adult role models for students through tutoring and mentoring opportunities that broaden their educational experience
  • Provide enriching intergenerational experiences for students and senior citizens that enrich students' lives.

Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program must complete our volunteer application annually. If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, he/she may contact the Human Resource Department to assist in completing and submitting the application on the person’s behalf. To ensure all requirements are met a volunteer should complete the following:
  • Submit an application to the District Office
  • Complete background screenings required by the State of Florida (Fingerprinting is at NO cost to the volunteer)
  • Take a photo for an ID Badge
The principal or designee must review and approve each volunteer application and indicate the following:
  •   Where the volunteer will be assigned
  •   Designate an employee to oversee volunteers

 No person may provide volunteer service until all necessary clearances are verified by the District Office and approved by the principal. A badge will be provided for the volunteers and should be worn at all times while on campus. Volunteers are required to re-register each school year and update all information.
