私たちは、ボランティアの保護者の皆様のご協力、ご支援、ご存在に感激しています。子どもたちを第一に考えた安全な環境を提供するためには、以下の手順を守る必要があります。

  • チェックインの手順建物内にいるボランティアの方は、必ずサインをして、学校から支給された訪問者バッジを使用してください。
  • 守秘義務。教育者は守秘義務の重要性を認識しています。子どもとその家族のプライバシーが尊重される環境では、誰もがより安心して過ごすことができます。私たちは、私たち自身が守秘義務を果たすのと同じように、ボランティアにも守秘義務を果たすことを期待しています。
教室でのボランティア活動

保護者の方には、お子様の教室でのボランティア活動をお勧めしています。教師は通常、カリキュラム・ナイトで教室でのボランティアの機会を用意しており、その他のボランティアの必要性を年間を通してお知らせします。

奉仕活動の機会 - PTO

We have a strong tradition of volunteering at Minnewashta Elementary. Parents, guardians, and family members are involved in so many aspects of our children’s education. We hope every parent can find at least one way to help each year. All PTO Volunteer opportunities (with descriptions) are posted on our website at the beginning of each school year. You can access and sign up for these opportunities year round. Computers are set up in the school lobby during Curriculum Nights for you to use to sign up, as well. Throughout the year, various committees may also distribute volunteer request forms.


Background Check Process for Volunteers

To ensure the safety of our students, we require criminal background checks on the following:

  • Any volunteer who accompanies students off campus (i.e., chaperones for field trips).
  • Any volunteer who is responsible for working with students on campus, but not under the supervision of a licensed teacher.

Volunteer background checks do not need to be done every year. Once you have been approved through our volunteer background check process, you will be cleared to volunteer into the future without going through the process again.

To inquire whether you already have a cleared volunteer background check on file, please contact either the main office or Human Resources at 952-401-5014.

The online criminal background check form requires you to provide authorization for a variety of criminal background checks:

  • National Sex Offense History: Provides a sexual offender registry check of all 50 states plus the District of Columbia.
  • Criminal SuperSearch: A criminal search for 47 states plus the District of Columbia.
  • Social Security Number Trace: Provides the name, aliases, 10 year address history, and all social security numbers associated with the individual. Verifies that the social security number is valid, gives year of issuance and state issued.

The background checks will be done at the District’s expense and information will be kept confidential. Human Resources staff members will review the results of each background check. If there are any concerns regarding the results of a background check, Human Resources will contact that individual directly within 24-48 hours after receiving the results. If you are not contacted within 48 hours after filling out the background check form you are clear to volunteer. The online form includes an option for volunteers to request a copy of their own report.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to maintain a safe and secure educational environment for our students.

Note: If you are a current employee of Minnetonka Schools, you are already cleared to work in the District, so do not need to complete the volunteer background check.
