Volunteerism has a positive impact on the school environment. In accordance with Board procedures and provincial requirements on Volunteers in the School, a Child Abuse Register Check and Vulnerable Sector Check (formerly a Criminal Record Check) are a mandatory requirement of the screening process. You are encouraged to contact your school principal if you are interested in volunteering your services.
For more information, please refer to the Volunteers in the School Policy VI-C-1 and supporting procedures, PRO VI-C-1.
