Academic Volunteer Program

Image of adult volunteer helping student

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.

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

Forms for the 2019-20 school year will be available in mid-July.

Parent/Guardian Academic Volunteer Form

If you are the parent/guardian of a student attending Centerville Schools, you may fill out the Parent/Guardian Academic Volunteer Form to indicate your interest in volunteering for the current school year.

Returning Community Academic Volunteer Form

New Community Academic Volunteer Application/Form

Required Background Screening

All applicants who would like to be considered as a potential academic volunteer are required by Centerville City Schools to submit to a criminal background screening.

  • Any person who has a current  screening through Centerville City Schools (substitutes, team managers/coaches, CCS retired staff, CCS employees) and has met the requirement does not need to submit a request through through SecureVolunteer-Background Investigation Bureau (BIB).
  • SecureVolunteer-BIB criminal background screenings must be re-submitted every two years in order to continue volunteering. The SecureVolunteer background screening is provided by the district at no cost to the applicant.
  • All other background screenings through outside organizations will not be considered.
  • Please follow the link to enter a request for a background screening through SecureVolunteer-BIB.
