To serve as a volunteer within any IPS school, an application must be submitted and approved by the Human Resource Office. Using the information provided, we will obtain a limited criminal history background check for potential volunteers. Upon review of the criminal history, a decision will be made to approve or deny each volunteer for participation. A notification of approved volunteers will be sent to the school(s) you would like to volunteer at, and volunteers must complete the Online Volunteer Application every 12 months.
