Nova Classical Academy appreciates the valuable time and resources provided by our dedicated families and volunteers. A volunteer shall follow the instruction and/or direction of Nova Classical Academy at all times during their volunteer shifts for all activities, athletics, clubs, as well as events related to both academic and non-academic programming for which the volunteer is present as a result of their volunteer relationship with Nova Classical Academy.
Statement of Confidentiality
Our school is a vital part of the community. Respecting one’s privacy and confidentiality are very important.
Students in the Nova Classical Academy School District #4098 have the right to expect that information about them will be kept confidential by all employees, volunteers, student teachers, substitutes, and employees of independent contractors. Additionally, the U.S. Congress has addressed the privacy-related concerns of educators, parents, and students by enacting the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (known more commonly as “FERPA”).
Each student with whom you work has the right to expect that nothing that happens to him or her will be repeated to anyone other than authorized school district employees, as designated by the administrators at each school. Even when discussing a student with those who are directly involved in a student’s education, such as a teacher, principal, or guidance counselor, you may not share otherwise confidential information with them unless it is relevant to the student’s educational growth, safety, or well-being.
You may not share information regarding a student even with others who are genuinely interested in the student’s welfare, such as social workers, scout leaders, clergy, or healthcare professionals. You must refer all such questions to the school district employees so authorized to do so, typically the student’s teacher or building principal. The only exception is in the event of an urgent medical emergency, in which confidential information may be necessary for a student’s medical care.
Parents, friends, or community members may in good faith ask you questions about a particular student. Again, you must refer all such questions to an authorized school district employee. You may not share information about a student even with members of your own family or the student’s family.
Volunteer Liability and Indemnification
A volunteer shall, at all times, indemnify and hold harmless Nova Classical Academy and its officers, agents, and employees from any and all claims, damages, and expenses arising out of injuries to persons or damage to property which resulted from any omissions or negligent acts of the volunteer.
By providing your signature, I understand the expectations outlined above; including the requirements of a background check and confidentiality and agree to abide by the guidelines set forth.
Nova Classical Academy
Your volunteer application has been successfully submitted and will be reviewed per the Nova Classical Academy’s volunteer policy. In the near future, you will be notified as to volunteer status. If you have any questions, please request to speak with the District Receptionist.
