Volunteer & Clearance Information

We are grateful for the wonderful help our parents provide!

Please review our Volunteer Clearance Requirements for information about the necessary applications and forms.

To provide a high level of safety to our students and staff, we require clearances for certain types of volunteers. Avon Grove Charter School (AGCS) welcomes any member of the student’s family, caring adults in the student’s life, as well as members of our local community to volunteer. All volunteers responsible for the care, supervision, guidance or control of children and routine interaction with children are required to have their background clearance, and effective December 31, 2015, fingerprinting results on file at the main offices of AGCS.
Fingerprinting (effective 12/31/15) and background clearance results must be on file for volunteers that are:

•  Ongoing, long-term: Volunteering at the school regularly, three (3) or more in one school year
•  Face-to-face: Volunteering with direct contact with children
•  Alone: Volunteering as the sole adult with children, unsupervised with children (i.e., during a field trip)
