Questions & Answers
Do volunteers have to apply at each school?
No. With the completion of the volunteer application procedure and approval, volunteers are permitted to serve in any school or district program.
How long does it take to be placed on the comprehensive list of approved volunteers?
It typically takes two weeks for the clearance process to be completed.
What is the volunteer and visitor screening technology?
All schools use the Raptor system, which includes: the scan of a national sex offender database that provides another layer of security for our students and staff; printing of a volunteer badge; and when you check in and out, a record of the hours and categories of volunteer service. The school administrative secretary will add you into this screening system when you first volunteer.
How do volunteers check in and out at each school?
Staff in the main school office advise you. You will need your driver license when you check in for the first time. They will direct you to a check-in / check-out kiosk computer to use the Raptor volunteer and visitor screening technology.
