We love having volunteers help out in our schools! There are a few things you should know if you're interested in volunteering. For detailed information about volunteering at a specific school, please contact the main office staff.
In order to ensure a safe environment for all students and staff, volunteers who wish to serve at Stephen Bell Elementary or at Bell Creek Intermediate will need to complete a background check prior to visiting the school. Secure Volunteer is an online system created to help organizations manage volunteering screening. Secure Volunteer is powered by the Background Investigation Bureau (BIB), a nationally recognized screening firm founded in 1955. The BIB is PCI Certified, with safeguards to protect personal data and credit card information.
Secure Volunteer is easy to use, and it only takes about five minutes to complete. It uses a secure portal to protect private data. You will receive notifications via email about status and approval. Approved volunteers also receive a Secure Volunteer ID card, which you should bring with you to all volunteer events. The fee for this service is $13.95 for a valid background check, and your successful check wil be good for three years. Please note that a background check is mandatory for any volunteers who wish to serve at Bell Creek Intermediate or Stephen Bell Elementary.
