School Volunteers

I am excited to announce that all district 15 schools are allowed to welcome back Volunteers. There is a wide range of people that partner with CCSD15 schools, from student teachers and volunteers, to consultants and contractors. To ensure the safety of staff and students, each of these groups requires screening based on their involvement with students. Parents interested in volunteering must complete the Volunteer Interest Form and Confidentiality Agreement. This can be accessed through the district website. Parents must provide a valid id and be entered into our Raptor system upon volunteering at school. It only needs to be completed once, regardless of how many schools a volunteer visits.
For approval, all community volunteers must have passed the required background check AND completed the Confidentiality Agreement.

For more information, please visit this link: Volunteer Website

Once volunteers are cleared and/or completed the required paperwork, we can discuss what type of volunteer work you would like to assist with. We are always looking for help in the Library, Lunch, Recess, Primary Classrooms etc. Family members cannot work in their child's classroom. Please call the main office with further questions. Thank you for your consideration.
