The District recognizes that community citizens as volunteers provide valuable services which benefit our schools and students. Volunteers may come from all backgrounds and all age groups and may include any community members willing to give their time to help students and school staff. The District and Board of Education encourage the use of volunteers within our schools.
Individuals interested in volunteering in the Fond du Lac School District are required to complete and submit an application form and confidentiality form which can be obtained in the Resources section (right hand side) of this web page. Please take great care in completing these forms because any misrepresentation on these forms may result in immediate disqualification for any volunteer service within the Fond du Lac School District.
How the Process Works
Principals/administrators will make the final determination whether an interested community member will serve as a volunteer. The safety and well being of the District’s students and staff is paramount. Therefore, the district may conduct criminal background checks on all volunteers who work directly with and/or have access to students. Background checks, if completed, will be conducted prior to the first time the individual volunteers to work with the students and the District reserves the right to conduct additional background checks periodically thereafter.
School volunteers will be expected to abide by all applicable laws, District polices and administrative procedures when performing their responsibilities. All District employees working directly with a volunteer are responsible for directing and supervising the activities of the volunteer with broad supervision provided by the building principal/administrators.
