New BVSD Volunteer Procedures

Boulder Valley School District has begun  new background checks for all individuals wishing to volunteer in our schools. 

If you are an occasional (once or twice a year) volunteer, you will need to read the Volunteer Letter and fill out the Volunteer Form.

If you volunteer on a regular basis, you will also need to read the Volunteer Letter and then need to visit www.tclogiq.com/bvsdv to complete the back ground check form.  There is a $16.00 fee that is paid at the end of submission.   

Please be aware that the background clearance is valid from AUGUST 1, 2011 to AUGUST 1, 2012, so you will want to complete the check after August 1 to be in compliance for the 2011-2012 school year.  It takes approximately 48-72 hours for background checks to clear through the system.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Registrar, Lisa Gefke, at lisa.gefke@bvsd.org.  She will be happy to help you with this process.

Volunteer

 

One of High Peaks strengths is the support and involvement of our families. High Peaks relies on volunteers at every grade level- both in the classroom and school-wide. Volunteers play a very important role at High Peaks- supporting the teachers, staff, and the High Peaks community, while ultimately enriching the learning environment for our children. Whether you can volunteer in the classroom, at the school, or from home, your support is greatly needed and appreciated. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinatorand we'll be happy to answer questions and find you a position which fits your schedule!

Classroom volunteers are handled by the individual teachers.
