Confidentiality Statements/Volunteer Pledge, Acknowledgement and Release Statement/Affidavit-Please ready carefully and provide your signature

*Permissions: I understand that the volunteer screening process includes both a federal fingerprint-based criminal background check and verification of references I provided. I give permission for a SFPS representative(s) to contact the references listed in order to determine my suitability to work with children. I give permission to share the results of these findings with District personnel or outside organizations with which SFPS has fully executed memoranda of understanding agreements (MOU).

*Acknowledgement: I understand that there is no legal right to volunteer. At its discretion, SFPS may decline my offer of volunteer services. If my offered services are not accepted, the SFPS Volunteer Coordinator will notify me in writing of this outcome.

*Confidentiality Agreement: I understand that by providing services as a volunteer with SFPS, I am required to respect the confidential knowledge I might attain concerning the academic performance, behavior and personal information of the students and staff with whom I work. If a child and/or a teacher discloses something, or I observe anything that may indicate their safety could be at risk or they are in emotional distress, I will report these concerns to my supervising teacher or a support staff member. Also, I agree not to initiate contact with the children with whom I work or with their families, outside of the school or programs to which I have been assigned.

Affidavit: I certify that the answers given in connection with this form are true, accurate, and complete to the best of my knowledge. I understand that any false, inaccurate, omitted or misleading information provided will result in revoking my volunteer status. 

I authorize SFPS to check my personal and employment history, including without limitation: evaluations, criminal arrest and conviction records, references provided, and release of investigatory information possessed by any private or public employer of any state, local or federal agency. I expressly waive in connection with any request for or provision of such information, any claims, including without limitation, defamation, emotional distress, invasion of privacy or interference with contractual relations, which I may otherwise have against the SFPS, its agents and officials or any provider of such information. Furthermore, I release my previous employer(s) from any liability related to the disclosure or release of my records.

I further authorize SFPS to release my personal and employment history to any potential employer or volunteer program with all relevant information concerning my performance history as a volunteer. 

References and information collected during this process is confidential and will not be revealed to me as the applicant. 

The conviction of a crime or any affirmative answer provided by the applicant on this document is NOT an automatic bar to becoming a volunteer. SFPS will consider the nature of any conviction or alleged conduct underlying the affirmative response, the date of the alleged conduct in question, and the relationship between the offense or alleged conduct underlying the affirmative response, and the role of a volunteer.

I further understand it is my responsibility to be in accordance with any updates and changes regarding policy and regulation as long as I volunteer with SFPS. 

I further understand that any offer to be a volunteer may be withdrawn upon written notice by the District. I will immediately notify the District Volunteer Coordinator if I am charged with any subsequent crime or am the subject of a restraining order hearing.
