Volunteering in schools is a wonderful, beneficial experience that rewards not only the students and the teachers, but also the volunteers themselves. It provides an opportunity to create positive relationships and support schools in succeeding in their overall goal of student achievement.
Our volunteers at Douglass Elementary are extremely valued and important. We have a strong base of parent and community volunteers filling a wide variety of needs at our school. There are numerous opportunities throughout the year to participate in your child's education including in the class room; on field trips; in the library, computer lab or art room; to name only a few.
For a full list of volunteer opportunities here at Douglass, please view our PTO Volunteer Website.
If you are interested in volunteering in your student's classroom or on a field trip, please contact the classroom teacher directly.
To promote a safe, nurturing, and supportive educational environment, all volunteers are required to complete a background screening prior to performing any volunteer work with the Boulder Valley School District.
The background screening can be done either yearly with TCLogiQ OR a one-time fingerprint clearance submitted to CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation). For your convenience we offer on-site fingerprinting several times a year. There is a charge of $10 in addition to the $40 fee to process your fingerprints. Check the school calendar and watch for announcements in our school newsletter for dates and times.
See below for helpful links, forms and information about completing your background screening.
