Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in CBE schools 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. Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.​

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​​​

Expectations of CBE Volunteers

You are required to:

  • Receive direction from and be accountable to the teacher in charge
  • Maintain confidentiality in all matters relating to your role
  • Be a positive role model for students
  • Report poor student behaviour to the teacher in charge
  • Have appropriate qualification for the activity
  • Dress appropriately for your duties and present a positive image to the community at large
  • Refrain from smoking while on school property or on a field trip
  • Refrain from bringing children with you who are not students enrolled at the school

Routines for School Volunteers

Parking

We ask that all volunteers park in the Riverbend Community Centre parking lot as close to the school as they can get.

Check In

Report to the main office when you arrive to volunteer, sign in, and wear visible identification.

Valuables

Avoid bringing valuables into the school unless absolutely necessary. Keep wallets/purses with you. The CBE is not responsible for lost or stolen personal property.

Washrooms

Use only the washrooms designated for adults or staff members.
