I have offered my services to help the School District. I agree to abide by all relevant Board policies and administrative guidelines while on duty for the District (including, but not limited to, the volunteer's obligation to keep confidential and not release or permit access to any and all student personally identifiable information to which s/he is exposed except as authorized by law - see below). I understand that, although I am covered under the District's liability insurance policy, I am not covered by its health insurance policy nor am I eligible for workers' compensation. This includes any minor(s) under my care, custody, or control. Should I become ill or suffer an accident while doing volunteer work for the District, I agree that I shall be responsible for any and all hospital and medical charges that may accrue.
I understand further that, as a volunteer, I am not in any manner considered an employee of the District or entitled to any benefits provided to employees. I further release the Board of Education from any and all liability for any damages, whatever their nature, which may result as a consequence of my volunteer services.
All volunteers need to display appropriate behavior at all times. In accordance with R.C. 109.575, all volunteers who work or apply to work unsupervised with children on a regular basis may/will be required to provide a set of fingerprints at any time so that a criminal records check can be conducted. One or more of the volunteer activities you have selected may require you to provide your United States social security number so we can perform a criminal background check. Your social security number will only be used for this purpose and we do not retain this information. If a criminal records check is conducted, it will be done as a condition of initial or continued service as a volunteer. If a criminal records check indicates that a volunteer has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to any of the offenses described in R.C. 109.572(A)(1), the volunteer will be informed of the Board's actions in accordance with Policy 4120.09.
