​​​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​​​

Volunteering at Tuscany School

Volunteers at Tuscany School play a very special part in our educational programs. Your help enables us to enrich learning and teaching in a number of ways. Children are provided with extended opportunities individually and in small groups. Programs are enhanced immeasurably with resources and materials that volunteers help provide. We ask that volunteers turn off cell phones in the school and refrain from texting while volunteering.

Volunteer registration and security clearance is required for all volunteers. The process of registering as a volunteer consists of two parts. The first is the completion of a Volunteer Registration Form. By completing this form the volunteer agrees to abide by the conditions that protect the safety, confidentiality and working environment of the school. This form needs to be completed every school year. The second part is the completion of the Consent to Search and Disclosure of Personal Information Form that permits the Calgary Police Service to perform a criminal record check. This clearance is valid for five years. This process begins with an authorization letter issued by your child‟s school upon presentation of current identification. Volunteers are not able to volunteer in the school until the security clearance is complete and all documentation is on record and the application has been approved by Calgary Police Services. Please note Calgary Board of Education policy, which indicates that siblings are not able to accompany volunteers when they are working in the school.

Check out the volunteer opportunities at our school.

Volunteers in the Learning Commons
