Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trinity Christian School volunteer. You will be joining a growing group of dedicated parents and grandparents who function in valued positions and are greatly appreciated. To further the security of our TCS students, the School Advisory Committee and The School Board have approved the volunteer packet, which adheres to the State policy HB 7069 guidelines for volunteer background screening.
What Does A Volunteer Do?
The typical volunteer offers his/her services during part or all of a day. The hours and days you volunteer will be agreed upon with the staff member with whom you are volunteering. Staff members are generally not able to accommodate volunteers who request to work in their child’s classroom, since it is sometimes distracting for the child. It is required that volunteers sign in and out with the front desk and wear their volunteer badge at all times.
All required application forms must be filled out and returned to the Elementary School front office. Volunteering can only begin after paperwork processing is completed. It may take up to two weeks from the date of submission to process the required forms and perform a background screening, so please plan accordingly. We recommend starting the process as soon as possible!
The following checklist needs to be completed by each volunteer every school year. The necessary forms are available for download below, please feel free to make copies for spouses, etc.
-Complete and sign Trinity Christian School’s Volunteer Application. Include a copy of your current Florida Driver’s License and automobile insurance card. Attached to this application are the Volunteer Guidelines. Please read them carefully.
-Complete and sign the Volunteer Affidavit and the Child Care Attestation of Good Moral Character.
-Complete the LiveScan Background Screening Submission Form (every 5 years, cost $59 for Elementary/Middle School and $79 for Preschool). TCS is only registered with Atlantic Screening. Please look out for upcoming screening opportunities held at the school or make an appointment and visit their office.
-Complete the Release of Information Form (Local Background check, every subsequent year).
The TCS Administration will contact you when all of your paperwork has been approved. You may begin volunteering after notification. Thank you for your willingness to serve!
