Academic Volunteer Program

Get involved in your local schools and help our students grow!

In Centerville Schools, we believe that learning is attainable for all. The mission of the Academic Volunteer Program is to provide the best education possible for each student in our schools by involving parents and community members in meeting the varying and diverse needs of our students.

Academic volunteer opportunities are available during school hours in grades K-12 and also in one after-school program. Volunteers assist students -- some who may be struggling, others who need to reinforce skills and still others who need enrichment -- in various ways and in many subjects. We try to match volunteer interests and talents with a variety of positions. Click here to view position descriptions.

Note: To volunteer for classroom parties and other events at your child's school, please contact your school's PTO officers.

How to Become an Academic Volunteer

There are TWO requirements that must be met every school year in order to be considered for academic volunteering in Centerville City Schools, the Volunteer Form and the valid Background Check:

1. Fill out the appropriate academic volunteer form for the 2022-23 school year. You must complete a form each school year.

2. Have a valid background screening approved by Centerville City Schools:

  • VALID background screening that was processed through the Centerville City Schools Board of Education office (substitutes, coaches, CCS retired staff, CCS employees), OR
  • Any individual who does NOT have a CCS background screening must submit a request to a criminal background screening, every two years, through the SecureVolunteer-BIB company. The SecureVolunteer-BIB screening is paid for by the district at no cost to the applicant. Please be sure to pick "Academic Volunteer" as the package. Click here to request your background check.
  • Please note: All other background screenings through outside organizations will not be considered.

To better serve and understand the role of an academic volunteer, please read through the Centerville City Schools' AVP Volunteer Handbook.
