Volunteering at Rosedale School

Parent volunteers are a valuable support in our school, providing assistance to teachers in direct work with students, preparing classroom materials, working in the library,    supervising field trips, and a myriad of other tasks. All parent volunteer time is enormously appreciated.

The volunteer coordinator, in partnership with the staff, coordinates the volunteer program. As per CBE policy to ensure student safety and security, it is mandatory that ALL volunteers fill out the "Volunteer Registration Form" yearly. \

Volunteer Drivers

Volunteer drivers are sometimes required for field trips. Volunteer driver forms/driver abstract/volunteer form must be completed and signed by the school principal prior to anyone driving for a CBE sponsored activity.

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
