School Volunteers

Welcome and thank you for your willingness to be a volunteer in the New Fairfield Public Schools. It is of the utmost concern to our district that we provide and maintain a safe environment for our students. Therefore, we require the following steps to approve you as a volunteer in our schools:

Click Here for Form 1212

This form must be completed each school year and returned to the school office in which you want to volunteer. Upon completion of this form a member of the office staff will perform an initial check of the sex offender list. Should the search result in a clean check, you will be placed on the school volunteer list for the district. The volunteer’s name will be checked against the sex offender list every time the person enters the building as a volunteer.

This additional step is required for any volunteer who will be alone with students for any length of time without a school staff member present. Examples include but are not limited to supervising lunch in the classroom and field trips.

Even if you have had background checks for any other reason, you must be fingerprinted with a service code specific to volunteering at the New Fairfield Police Department.

Fingerprinting will not be required again unless there is a break in the volunteer’s service. A break in service is described as a school year in which Form 1212 has not been completed.

We appreciate your willingness to be involved in the educational endeavors of our students and thank you in advance for your adherence to our procedures to ensure that all remain safe and secure.
