Academic Volunteer Program

Image of volunteer working with studentThe 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 staff needs.

Centerville City Schools are fortunate to have parent and community volunteers who are dedicated to supporting our students and staff. We hope you will consider becoming part of this team.

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

Note: If you have already completed a paper form, you do not need to complete an electronic form.


If you are a parent/guardian of a student attending Centerville Schools, you may indicate your interest in becoming an academic volunteer by submitting the Information Form for Parents/Guardians and Returning Volunteers.

Returning Community Volunteer

If you are a returning community volunteer who has volunteered in Centerville Schools in the past, you may submit the Information Form for Parents/Guardians and Returning Community Volunteers.

New Community Volunteer

If you are a new community volunteer (people who do not have children attending Centerville Schools – which includes grandparents, other relatives, friends, neighbors and people from area businesses), please complete the combined application and information form for New Community Volunteers. Then, one of our District AVP Coordinators will contact you to discuss the next steps.

Background Check

All Academic Volunteers must complete a Volunteer Information Form and have a current background check through SecureVolunteer-Background Investigation Bureau (BIB) or Centerville City Schools (substitutes, coaches, part-time or full-time employees). If you do not have a current SecureVolunteer-BIB background check (valid for two years) or a CCS background check, click here to enter a request for a background check through SecureVolunteer-BIB. The SecureVolunteer background check is provided by the district at no cost to the applicant.
