Volunteers

Wissahickon School District values the contributions that volunteers make to the educational programs of our schools and encourages parents and community members to volunteer.

Families and community members who are interested in volunteering in our schools are invited to review the procedures and requirements as outlined below. For the safety of our students and staff, all persons who are interested in volunteering in our schools are required to comply with these volunteer eligibility procedures in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. Volunteers who do not comply with these requirements are not eligible to volunteer.

As always, thank you for your contribution of time, talent, resources and support. We appreciate your willingness to volunteer in our schools and hope you know how much your efforts mean to our staff and students!

For specific questions, please contact the main office of your student's school.

Step #1: Complete and submit the required documentation. All volunteer documentation is submitted to the main office of your student's school. Any costs associated with procuring these clearances are the responsibility of the volunteer.

Clearances: All volunteers that have direct contact with children need clearances every 5 years. Direct contact means that the volunteer is responsible for the care, supervision, guidance or control of a child or children. View the Volunteer Q&A for specific examples.
