Parent volunteerism is an important part of CCA. We depend on our parents to share their talents and time to help make our school successful. There are many types of volunteer activities. Volunteers working directly with children must have a criminal background check. Background checks take 2-3 weeks to complete, so please get yours done in advance if you think you might chaperone a field trip at some point throughout the year. Information about how to obtain a criminal background check is available in the office.
FINGER PRINTING FOR VOLUNTEERS AND CHAPERONES
A fingerprint background check is required for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:
- classroom volunteers
- chaperones on field trips
- assisting at school activities such as dances
- coaching teams/activities
Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records, and the volunteer has completed an orientation, will be able to volunteer.
Each classroom teacher schedules various field trips to interesting and educational locations. Parents are encouraged to chaperone such school activities, but are asked not to bring younger children due to liability issues. Any person transporting students must provide CCA with proof of a current driver’s license and a minimum liability insurance coverage of $100,000/$300,000. Proof of driver’s license and insurance coverage needs to be resubmitted yearly. In addition, chaperones are required to have a criminal background check prior to the activity. Field trips are considered an extension of CCA. Therefore all school policies and rules apply for all students, as well as chaperones.
