Volunteers/BRAVO

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.

CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VOLUNTEERS
During the school day, all volunteers are expected to sign in at the front office.  Prior to the volunteer opportunity, all volunteers must sign a Non-disclosure Acknowledgement Form and have successfully completed a Full Criminal History Background Check.  Necessary background check paperwork is available on the ZCS website at the Volunteers/BRAVO link and should be submitted at least 10 days prior to the intended volunteer date.  Volunteers must also view the state mandated confidentiality/bullying video, provided on the Volunteer/BRAVO website.  The volunteer will pay the fee* for the full background check which will expire after 5 years.    
 
 
Examples include: (but not limited to):
  • Field Trip Chaperones
  • Out of Town/Overnight Chaperones
  • Tutors
  • Volunteer Coaches
  • Classroom Helpers (PTO parties/room parents)
  • Library Helpers
  • After Prom Workers
  • Field Day/Jog-A-Thon Volunteers
  • Book Fair Sales/Athletic Ticket Sales 

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.  

 

Examples Include:

  • Lunch Guests
  • Classroom Guest Speakers
  • Classroom Special Events (Grandparent Day/Famous Hoosiers/etc.)
  • Parent/Teacher Conferences

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.

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.
