If you are planning to volunteer in your child’s classroom, help out on field trips, volunteer in our school
for special events, you must obtain criminal record check clearance (see process below)
The Ministry of Justice regulations require any volunteer who comes near or works around children to
complete a criminal record check, regardless of the time spent working near or around them. This
requirement involves a Criminal Record Search, valid for 5 years, which includes a Vulnerable Sector
Steps to become a volunteer:
1. Pick up a volunteer package at our school office. Please fill out the Volunteer Application Form and Confidentiality Understanding Form. Return them to the school office.
These forms need to be completed annually.
2. Have your criminal record check processed (see below)
Criminal Record Check Process:
Interested volunteers must go to the School Board Office to complete a criminal record check. (There is no cost)
You will be asked to provide 2 piecesof I.D. (primary and secondary I.D.) to verify yourself along with your criminal record consent form. The
District's authorized contact submits the form to the CRRP for processing and will advise our school of
the results once they are received. At this time, you can start volunteering.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer in our school.
