Volunteer with Madison School District
Important Information Regarding Volunteers for 2021-2022
The District continues to value our volunteers and appreciate their time and energy to assist in the classroom and at school. While nonessential visitors and volunteers will be limited when school begins, we hope to ease back into allowing volunteers and visitors, depending on local transmission rates. Parents will report to the front office and not go beyond unless it is for the safety or well-being of their child and must follow all safety protocols including physically distancing, as feasible, and are encouraged to wear a face mask around students who have not had the opportunity to be fully vaccinated. The Madison Traditional Academy volunteer policy will be modified as needed, depending on local transmission rates. Those who are contracted to assist with the operation and supervision during the school day, (i.e., those contracted to supervise during recess), including volunteers, must follow all protocols including verifying that they have not be exposed to COVID-19, attest to not having any of the defined symptoms, and sign a waiver form approved by the Governing Board on September 22, 2020. Any essential volunteer or visitor who refuses to sign the waiver will not be permitted on campus.
At Madison, we understand how important is it to provide meaningful opportunities for parent and community involvement. Volunteering at your child’s school, whether in the classroom or on a field trip, is a great way to stay connected to your child’s education. Madison also has opportunities for members of our community to get involved with their local schools as well.
A complete list of available volunteer opportunities for each school are available in the volunteer application.
Parent/Guardian Classroom Volunteers
Parent/guardian volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application. Volunteer applications must be completed by November 1st.
Non-Parents/Guardians and Overnight Volunteers
Non-parents and non-guardians will be required to obtain background and fingerprint clearance to volunteer. Anyone volunteering on an overnight field trip will also be required to obtain background and fingerprint clearance. Madison will cover all associated costs. Non-parent/guardian and overnight volunteers will also need to complete the volunteer application.
Safety of our students, staff, and volunteers is a matter we take seriously and we appreciate your cooperation as we ensure we are employing best practices for student safety at the Madison School District.
