Parent and Volunteer Involvement

Parental involvement is a vital component of our school. Whether your involvement is through attending School Council meetings or events, helping in the classroom, volunteering for field trips or assisting classroom preparations at home, all parents are encouraged to volunteer in some way.

We value the assistance provided by all volunteers, and welcome all community members to consider volunteering their time at the school. Please contact the office to discuss opportunities to volunteer.

Adequate supervision is required for all activities outside the school. Should there not be enough volunteers to provide the required student to supervisor ration, events like field trips will be cancelled.

Volunteer Ethics

Volunteers at Ernest Morrow commit to a Code of Ethics. Any volunteer not adhering to the ethical behaviour expected of them will no longer have the ability to volunteer. The expectations are:

  • Volunteers must notify the principal of any criminal charges at the time the charge is made.
  • Volunteers are expected to act professionally while in the school, on trips or communicating with staff and students.
  • Volunteers will respect the roles and duties of school staff, and will not use the volunteer position to discover information about their child, another child, or a staff member.
  • Volunteers will be discreet and will not violate the confidentiality rules of the school or CBE by sharing information about student behaviour or academics at any time in person or online.
  • Volunteers will not disclose, communicate, publish, take, alter copy, interfere with, or destroy any information unless specifically authorized to do so by the teacher or the principal.
  •  Volunteers will refer any discipline issues to the supervising teacher in the school and Teacher in Charge (TIC) on field trips.

Volunteer with Us

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.) 

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, please keep in mind: 

  • Volunteers on an activity are considered representatives of the Calgary Board of Education and are subject to the same expectations as staff

  • Volunteers are subject to the requirements of CBE Administrative Regulation 5003 – Volunteers, which includes an application and a police security screening check

  • Volunteers are covered by the CBE’s liability insurance policy while performing their assigned duties

  • Volunteers are covered by WCB while performing their duties
