Volunteer Background Checks

Background Checks

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness and willingness to volunteer with our students and teachers at Watervliet Public Schools.  

Please realize, you must be an approved volunteer to work with and around our students.  We contract with Background Investigation Bureau (BIB), a nationally recognized organization that specializes in a nationwide background search.  We feel utilizing BIB helps to ensure the safety of the kids in our care.

Remember, visiting your child at lunch, attending a classroom party, or stopping in to see your child does not constitute volunteering and does not require a background check.  Working with our students, supervising activities, or chaperoning a trip does constitute volunteering and requires a background check.

The window of opportunity to apply for volunteer status at Watervliet Public Schools for the 2019-20 school year is August 30 - September30.  There is no cost to volunteer, just click here to apply.Please
