A Message from Superintendent Ted Sharp

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,

I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to the new school year.  I want to let you know about an important change to the Gorham School Volunteer Program.   In February 2013, the Gorham School Board adopted a new policy related to volunteers.  It is part of the district’s continuing efforts to ensure the safety of all children attending our schools.  It states:

In the interest of protecting the safety of students and staff, the school unit will 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 this year, you will be asked to provide your birth date and maiden name, if applicable.  This information will be submitted to the State Bureau of Identification.  Please note that criminal charges, investigations, arrests, or convictions for a crime will not necessarily bar you from volunteer service.   I will review any reports of criminal history and will decide whether the person may volunteer.  

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.   The Gorham Schools are grateful for the tremendous contribution you have made to the children of this community.

                                                        Sincerely yours,


                                                        Ted Sharp
                                                        Superintendent
