Deer Lakes School District strongly supports the involvement of parent/guardian and community volunteers. State law now requires that any volunteer who has direct contact with students to have necessary clearances on file with the District.
- Please note that clearances that have been obtained for other organizations (your local township, sports organizations, scouts, employment, etc.) will be accepted if they match the list below and are within the acceptable time limit. Copies must be obtained from these organizations and brought to the district in order to be on the list.
In addition, the following form must be signed and submitted:
- Acknowledgment of Volunteer Obligations - required for all those submitting clearances. Download a copy below.
- Acquiring the clearance documents takes time and we recommend that parents planning on volunteering in the schools complete the process as soon as possible. The documents will remain on file with the District for FIVE years at which time new clearances will be necessary.
