Volunteers play an important and valuable role in the Ross Valley School District. Students, teachers, staff, parents and the community benefit when volunteers share their talents, experience and resources. Volunteers support students in a variety of ways, including assisting in the classroom, on the playground and/or during lunch, as field trip drivers and chaperones, at school events, in afterschool activities/sports and a variety of special programs.
Due to recent changes in state regulations our updated volunteer protocols will require additional information and/or action on the part of our volunteers.
Effective with the start of the 2016-17 school year, all volunteers must submit a complete “Volunteer Application” along with either written verification from your physician of a negative tuberculosis test within the last 4 years or submission of a “Risk Assessment Questionnaire.” Additional requirements apply for those who will be volunteering as drivers and/or chaperones on overnight field trips. Please note that persons who visit our schools for one-time special events, such as guest speakers, are not considered “volunteers” for this purpose. If in doubt as to whether your participation in our schools constitutes volunteering, please check with your school principal and/or administrative assistant.
We cannot imagine RVSD without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers!
On behalf of the students and staff, we appreciate all that you give to support our schools!
