REVISED COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER POLICY FOR THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR!
Volunteers are an essential ingredient in the success of our schools and students. In an effort to update our policies and procedures, the School Board approved a revised Community Volunteer Policy at the May 27, 2014 meeting. The revised policy will go into effect at the start of the 2014-15 school year. We have updated our Community Volunteer webpage with all of the important information, changes and links to all of the necessary documents. To visit the Community Volunteer webpage, please click on the VOLUNTEER INFORMATION button
on the right side of the main district webpage or click
HERE.

The major changes to the revised Community Volunteer Policy include:
  • Two categories of Community Volunteers
    • Limited Contact Volunteers  - A volunteer who is in direct contact with or close proximity to school district employee while performing his/her volunteer service and there is NO time when the volunteer      is alone with a student or in a secluded, isolated or remote area with a student without a school district employee being present. Limited Contact volunteers include, but are not limited to, chaperones for single day field-trips, daily classroom, library or office assistant and/or assisting with classroom or building special events.
      • Complete Registration and Disclosure Statement (annually)
      • Coordinated at the Individual School Buildings   
    • Substantial Contact Volunteers - A volunteer who will or is reasonably likely to have direct contact  with a student while performing his/her volunteer service without direct supervision by a school district employee. Direct contact time may include, but is not limited to, coaching and/or assisting with an athletic team or musical performing group, advising an extracurricular activity, chaperoning an overnight field trip or competition, and/or providing supplemental assistance to a student, without direct supervision by a school district employee.
      • Complete Registration and Disclosure Statement (annually)
      • Complete Tuberculosis Risk Assessment Questionnaire
      • Required to Submit Act 34, Act 114 and Act 151 (every 4 years) 
           *Three Separate Clearances Paid for by the Volunteer
           *Total Cost for All Three Clearances - $48.75
           *All Clearances must be Received BEFORE the Volunteer Activity
      • Coordinated at the District Office for the entire District 
  • All Visitors and Volunteers will still be required to use the Raptor Visitor Management System upon entering each school
Parents are asked to work with their school principals in terms of the various activities (Limited Contact or Substantial Contact).  The Community Volunteer webpage provides greater detail into the revisions of the policy as well as direct links to all of the necessary forms.  If you are interested in viewing the Revised Policy, please click HERE.  Thank you for your continued support!!

2014-2015 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
Kindergarten Registration for the 2014-15 school year is officially open!  As a district, we are using a new process for registering all incoming Kindergarten students that will assist in reducing the need for paper copies and a more overall efficient registration process.  If your child will be 5 years old by August 31, 2014, we highly encourage parents to start the registration process now as starting the process allows the district to accurately make decisions for staffing and the number of classroom sections for the 2014-15 school year.

All new student registration information is located on the district's website -
www.spring-ford.net - please click on "For Parents" and then "New Student Registration".
