Volunteer Commitment and Procedures

For the safety of all students, you have read and agree to the following conditions:
  • Volunteers may be subject to a background check.
  • Volunteers must provide a valid photo ID or Driver's License.
CONFIDENTIALITY: What you hear about students, families, and staff while volunteering is confidential. Student information should never be shared publicly.

SUPERVISION: Volunteers will perform under the direction and supervision of school personnel. Volunteers should know and follow school rules and policies. Even though volunteers are non-paid, you should maintain a proper demeanor around staff and students. Volunteers should be well groomed and dress professionally. If you are not sure how you should dress, please ask a teacher or the school principal.

COMPENSATION/APPROVAL: There is no compensation for volunteers. The District maintains the right to approve, deny, or suspend any volunteer activities at its discretion pending background checks, or once approved, for any inappropriate behavior in the school environment.

STUDENT/VOLUNTEER RELATIONSHIPS: Volunteers operate under a condition of trust when working with students in the school setting. This volunteer agreement does not extend outside of the designated school partnership and is not intended to go beyond the supervised school environment.

MANDATORY REPORTING: By Georgia Law OCGA 119-7-5 if you have reason to believe a child has been abused, you must immediately report it to the school principal. Additional information regarding Mandatory Reporting can be found in the training below.
