Building Relationships And Volunteer Opportunities
Our mission is to engage our community in the education of our students
while enriching the lives of both.
Zionsville is a wonderful community full of talented people. Zionsville Community Schools feels fortunate to have the community as a resource to enhance the quality education of our students. Community members are invited to be involved in our schools. The real-world ideas, lessons, and experiences that professionals share can expand and enhance classroom curriculum. To help match volunteers in the community with instructional opportunities in our schools, a database is being created by professionals.
Due to the importance of maintaining a safe environment for our students and staff, prior to being a volunteer/visitor in a building, the district requires that you complete a background check application (Indiana State Police Background Check through Safe Visitor or a Safe Hiring Solutions Full Background check. Both valid for 5 years).
All Volunteers/Visitors please sign-in and sign-out at the front office. A visitor badge must be worn at all times.

Please know that even if you do not have a child currently enrolled as a ZCS student that you are invited to volunteer your time to enhance the learning opportunities of our students.
CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VISITORS
During the school day, all visitors must enter via the front door and sign-in at the front office. Visitors need to be prepared to present a government issued photo ID which will be scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry. All visitors will be issued a visitor badge/tag to be worn inside the building at all times.
We ask that all visitors schedule an appointment to meet with teachers, counselors, administrators and all other staff members so that we may best serve everyone. Visitors other than parents/guardians must be prearranged and organized through the main office.
*ZCS thanks all volunteers for generous support of our youth and schools. Thank you, too, for supporting assurance of student and staff safety by completing and paying for a volunteer background check
(The volunteer will pay $15.95 and will expire after 5 years.)
Once background checks are submitted and completed, they will be entered into a system maintained by the volunteer coordinator for the district. There is not a notification system in place to make the applicant aware of completion. The applicant will only be contacted if there is an issue with the background check.
