Volunteer Background Screening
In an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, CHA now requires additional security checks for persons wishing to volunteer for after school clubs or activities, and for those who chaperone off-site field trips (volunteers for in-class activities are only required to have the normal visitor screening done in the front office as you enter the school.) All after school or off-site volunteers must submit an online application through the Raptor System and receive clearance from CHA before the volunteering or chaperoning can occur.
Once you sign up to volunteer or chaperone, the teacher or activity supervisor will send your name to Mrs. Kathy Severson, who is our volunteer coordinator this year. She will contact each potential volunteer with instructions and a link for screening.
Plan Ahead! Screening results often come through within 48 hrs. but may also take up to two weeks, so please plan ahead. Last minute volunteering for field trips will not be accommodated without prior screening.
If you have any questions regarding the volunteer screening process, please contact the CHA Office.
