Volunteering in the Smithville School District

  • Volunteer Screening
     
    Community and parent volunteers are important to Smithville School District. We value their service and the contribution they make to the district's schools. In order to keep our children safe, the district will conduct a screening before any volunteer is placed in a position where he or she may be left alone with a student.
     
    Screening Process for Volunteer Working in A Classroom or School Office:
    1. Print, review, and sign the Volunteer Guidelines Acknowledgement Form and Technology Usage Agreement Form.
    2. Return completed forms to the building where you will be volunteering or mail the form to the address located at the bottom of this page. 
     
    Screening Process for Volunteer Coaches & Volunteer Working Alone w/ A Student:
    1. Print, review, and sign the Volunteer Guidelines Acknowledgement Form, Technology Usage Agreement Form, and Child Abuse/Neglect Registry Check Form.
    2. Visit http://www.machs.mo.gov to register to be fingerprinted.
    3. Return the completed Volunteer Guidelines Acknowledgement Form, Technology Usage Agreement Form, and Child Abuse/Neglect Registry Check Form to an Administrative Assistant in the building where you will be volunteering. The form will be forwarded to the Human Resources Office.
    4. The Human Resources Office will notify the Administrative Assistants of the results when the screening process is complete. The process can take up to two weeks to complete.
