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.
