Volunteer Information

Volunteering in Pendleton County Schools- OVERVIEW

Volunteers play an important role at Pendleton County Schools, whether a person assists a teacher with getting materials ready for class, attending a field trip, working one on one with students they are essential.

As a result of KRS 161.148/KRS161.044:

All parent volunteers that provide direct supervision of students must participate in a volunteer training (as designated by each district) and submit for a criminal record check.

In Pendleton County the following is required:

1)      Completion of volunteer handbook:

a.       Handbooks are available from each school secretary, Bus Garage and online at www.pendleton.kyschools.us  click parent resources, click volunteer forms.

b.       Completion of the 3 forms. Although some information is repetitive they go to different entities; Page 1 is the application form, Page 2 is the Participation Statement which includes the understanding about confidentiality and Page 3 is the Criminal Record Check form. 

c.       All 3 forms must be completed and be legible for processing. They can be mailed to the address noted on the forms or returned to the schools in a sealed envelope.

d.       Once received, the expected turn- around time is one week or less. Once approved the volunteer is added to the district list which is distributed to school secretaries. A letter from the Superintendent is forthcoming that indicates you have been approved. School secretaries have the information first.

e.       Volunteer records including criminal checks are good for 3 school years only. For example for records processed anytime during this school year, they will expire during the school year of 2019-2020.
