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 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.
- 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.
*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 $12.95 (there could be additional charges depending on additional counties/state searches required to complete the check) 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.
