IMPORTANT: You must complete a registration form for EACH CHILD you have at Narragansett School.
I understand that students in the Gorham Schools have the right to expect that information about them will be kept confidential by all volunteers. Each student with whom I work has the right to expect that nothing that happens to or about him/her will be repeated to anyone other than authorized school department employees. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act was designed to afford parents and students privacy and other rights with respect to educational records.
I understand that Gorham School Volunteers serve at the request of the school staff. School staff or I may terminate the relationship at any time without cause.
The policy states: In the interest of protecting the safety of students and staff, the school unit will conduct criminal background checks on all volunteers who will be working directly with or will have access to students, including those chaperoning students on field trips or school-sponsored excursions.
Please note that criminal charges, investigations, arrests, or convictions for a crime will not necessarily bar you from volunteer service.
