This one time orientation takes about 25 minutes and must be completed before you start your volunteer time with Gorham schools.
Thank you for considering volunteering for the Gorham School Department! It is only through the helping hands of volunteers just like yourself that we are able to do many of the wonderful things that we do for students! The Gorham Schools truly appreciates your willingness to serve our children.
Volunteering in the field of education is very different than it was just 20 years ago. Unfortunately, due to events such as Columbine or Sandy Hook, schools must make extra efforts to ensure the safety of all children attending our schools. As a parent/guardian, grandparent, caregiver, or community member, I’m sure you stand with us in making sure our students are safe and continue to be under the care of the most qualified and caring adults.
In the interest of protecting the safety of students and staff, the school unit continues to conduct criminal background checks on all volunteers who will be working directly with or will have access to students, including those chaperoning students on field trips or school sponsored excursions.
When you fill out your volunteer registration form, you will be asked to provide your birth date and maiden name (if applicable). This information will then be submitted to the State Bureau of Identification. Please know that if anything does show on your records check, that it will not necessarily bar you from volunteer service. I will review any reports of criminal history and will decide whether the person may volunteer.
Once again, THANK YOU for your cooperation, patience and understanding. The Gorham Schools are grateful for your willingness to donate your time, energy and expertise to our children and doubly grateful for the tremendous contribution you have made and will continue to make to the children of this community through your efforts.
