At the October 20, 2003 school board meeting, the Onalaska Board of Education enacted a new district policy requiring criminal background checks for people who want to volunteer in our schools. The purpose of this policy is to ensure the safety of our children when they are working with volunteers in the classrooms and in our schools. The policy outlines a volunteer application process that includes a written application to become a volunteer and a release statement that gives the district permission to conduct the criminal background check on the applicant.
Volunteers are very beneficial to our schools’ culture and success. Research shows that schools in which parents are active participants exhibit positive climate, healthy home-school relationships and increased student achievement. Please consider continuing to volunteer in our schools by complying with this process to ensure a safe environment for our children.
