​​​​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​​​

Volunteering at Douglasdale School

Volunteers are most welcome at our school. Volunteers are required to apply for Security Clearance by coming into the office to start the process. Each classroom has a room parent who arranges volunteers for special events and may also arrange classroom volunteers. Guests, volunteers and staff all wear name tags while they are in the school.

Our Volunteer Code of Ethics

  • Volunteers must be discreet. It is essential that a volunteer not discuss children, parents or school staff.
  • Volunteers respect the professional role and judgment of the teacher.
  • Volunteers should refer any discipline issues to the teacher in charge.
