All SLLIS volunteers, including family members and guardians, must complete an annual background check from the Family Care Safety Registry if they have a desire to volunteer or chaperone SLLIS events. Common volunteer activities include:
Work with students individually or in small groups under the supervision of the teacher or staff member
Work inside the school, assisting staff with projects (PTO Officers, etc.)
Work/organize field day activities
Be a room parent, organize class parties
Attend field trips - work with students individually or in small groups under the supervision of the teacher or staff member
There are a few steps to begin the process:
Complete a background check - please see the information here for details about how to go about this. If you are not already registered with the Family Care Safety Registry, this is a one time registration with a fee of $15.25. The registration and fee will be the responsibility of the volunteer. Once you submit the information outlined in the attached document, it usually takes the FCSR between 2-3 weeks to complete the check on their end.
Complete the Volunteer Interest Form. This will help us determine where to place you during your volunteer opportunity. If you do not provide your SSN and DOB on the secure form you must contact Dr. Graham, Talent Director (firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-533-0975 x2228), to provide your information in order for SLLIS to run your background check.
Once we have confirmed your background check and received your interest form, we can get started!
