​​​Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will be allowed in CBE schools only if they are scheduled in advance at this time. ​This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. 

Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.

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​​​

Our Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated at Dr. George Stanley School. The use of volunteers is strictly up to staff members who will determine the needs and make every attempt to provide opportunity to those who express interest. Co-ordination of volunteers can be supported through the office with our messenger software.

When Do We Typically Need Volunteers?

Field Experiences are the most common request for volunteers at a middle school level. On the top of each Acknowledgement of Risk there should be a form with a school bus. On that form there is a section requesting volunteers if they are needed. Teachers will take the information provided and contact all volunteers by phone to advise them if they are required for the trip. If you are not available please ensure you have voice mail established for teachers to leave you a message.

What Happens If There Aren’t Enough Volunteers?

When a class does not receive enough volunteers the school office can send out a message to parents requesting additional support. The message will first go out to the grade or class needing the support; if the results are still insufficient the message will be relayed to the whole school to seek supports. At NO time will a trip be cancelled due to lack of volunteers.

What Do I Need To Do If I Volunteered to Help Organize a Trip?

Please ensure you are coordinating your trips through our office and - if you require help in securing volunteers - send our administrative assistant an email at drgeorgestanley@cbe.ab.ca. We require the destination, time of departure and arrival back at the school and how many volunteers you require. Do not leave this too late as if we do not secure the adequate number of volunteers, staff members will need enough time in order to prepare physically (dress), emotionally (mental acuity to understand the learning outcomes) and academically (if they have classes to rearrange).

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
