Contact: Be A Mentor, Inc. What is the process to register as a parent or community volunteer?
Why does the District have these requirements? These requirements have been implemented as an additional safety measure to ensure an appropriate level of screening for adult volunteers.
Do parents need to register as volunteers? If a parent is performing a volunteer role that is beyond the scope of working only with their child, they are required to be registered as a general volunteer. Volunteers register on-line through a system hosted by Be A Mentor, Inc.
