All volunteers need to fill out a Criminal Record Check form. They will need to bring 2 pieces of specific identification listed below:
Please note that filling out a Criminal Record Check application takes about 10 minutes. Forms must be filled out on site and cannot leave the school.
We mail application off to RCMP, but due to privacy, the applicant gets the response back in the mail (not us) and has to bring that response in to the office in order for the School District to have their approved application on file. Once they are on file with an approved application, they can volunteer at any site in SD23 for 5 years which is handy as kids/siblings move to middle/high school. The approval process takes 6-8 weeks, give or take; we ask that they renew their Criminal Record Check application at the four-year mark though for continuous coverage.
Drivers need to fill out a Criminal Record Check form as well as a Driver's Declaration. For the Driver's Declaration form, I need a copy of their driver's license as well as all three pages of their vehicle insurance (plus any third-party liability insurance they may have in addition to their ICBC insurance coverage).
This form takes about 5 minutes to fill out.
Together, these forms take about 15-20 minutes to fill out (assuming the photocopier is free for me to make copies).
