1000 Series – Community Relations

2. Participation by the Public

B. School Community Associations

(1.) School Volunteers

The Suffield Board of Education recognizes that volunteers make many valuable contributions to our schools.  The Board encourages a volunteer program in the District and in its schools with suitable regulations and safeguards.

Volunteers may be parents, senior citizens or other persons interested in assisting in the school.  A volunteer must be under the supervision of a Suffield Public Schools employee and may assist with tasks including chaperoning field trips, clerical support, mentoring, coaching and other appropriate assignments.

Volunteers may be required to submit to state and federal criminal record checks and a record check of the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Child Abuse and Neglect Registry.  No person who is a “sex offender,” as defined by Public Act 98-111, An Act Concerning the Registration of Sexual Offenders may volunteer in the Suffield Public Schools.

Persons interested in volunteering their services should contact the school principal.
