Volunteering

Volunteer Form 20-21

At this time, PTO will not be asking for volunteer contact information due to our inability to have non-employees in the building and host events. Please check back later or email us if you have questions.

Background Checks

The PTO requires volunteers have a background check in order to volunteer. Please contact the PTO if you have any questions or if you are unable to pay the cost of the background check.

Via the TSC website:

Thank you for volunteering in the Tippecanoe School Corporation! We appreciate you and your service to our students and staff.

In an effort to continue our due diligence with regard to providing a safe environment for our students and staff, we require all volunteers having ongoing contact with children and/or supervising students (field trips, etc.) to have cleared an expanded criminal background check. These background checks are conducted through Background Investigation Bureau (BIB).

The criminal background check will search national sex offender databases, court records, etc. The cost of the criminal history check is $17.95 (base cost) and is paid for by the volunteer through a link on our website: SecureVolunteer.

Once approved, the volunteer will receive a TSC Volunteer identification card that will be valid for a period of three (3) years. If you volunteer in multiple buildings, you will only need to complete one background check.

Volunteer background checks may take several business days to process so it is important to plan ahead.

We appreciate your understanding of this important safety guideline.
