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 Acknowledge 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:

    2. Return the completed Volunteer Screening Form to an Administrative Assistant in the building where you will be volunteering or mail the form to the address located at the bottom of this page. The form will be forwarded to the Human Resources Office.
    3. The Human Resources Office will mail the Volunteer Screening Form to the Missouri State Highway Patrol for a criminal background check.
    4. The Missouri State Highway Patrol will forward the completed form to the Children's Division of the Missouri Department of Social Services to complete a check against their child abuse and neglect registry.
    5. The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Children's Division of the Missouri Department of Social Services will return the results to the Human Resources Office.
