Volunteer Security Clearances

All volunteers (parents, other relatives and friends, teachers from other schools) are required to have a current security clearance in order to volunteer in the school, or for the school on a field trip.  As the security clearance can take up to six weeks to be processed, all those interested in volunteering at the school (your child’s classroom or for a whole school activity) are encouraged to come into the school to begin the process. Please bring one piece of government issued identification. There is no cost to apply for your security clearance and it is valid for five years from the date of issue.  Avoid disappointment when you wish to volunteer by having your security clearance completed and up to date.

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

  • Volunteers receive direction from and are accountable to the teacher-in-charge
