Visitor and Volunteer Policy        
    
Vistor Policy

At Millennium Community School, we have an open door policy. Therefore, you are able to visit your child’s classroom at anytime to observe. (If you wish to talk with the teacher, you need to set an appointment)

For the safety of all, you are asked to adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Please sign in at the office and obtain a visitors badge.
  2. Please place the badge in a place where all staff members will be able to identify you as a visitor. This eliminates the staff having to ask you to report to the office to sign in. For security purposes, all visitors in the building not wearing a nametag will be required to return to the office to obtain one.
  3. When your visit is complete, please return to the office to sign out.

Volunteer Policy

Interested individuals should contact the building principal. The interests and abilities of the volunteers are considered when making assignments. All volunteers shall be registered with the School Administrative Office. Standard procedures for record keeping include hours contributed by various volunteers, types of services or donations made and an application kept on file at the school for any volunteer who works directly with students, especially in tutorial relationships.

A criminal records check might be required for some volunteers. In order to encourage a healthy and safe climate for students, the Board of Education has determined that it will follow the parameters of the Ohio Revised Code on criminal background checks for volunteers. Section 109.574 (Criminal Records Checks for Volunteers) allows school districts to notify current and prospective volunteers that they may be required to provide a set of impressions for fingerprinting purposes processed by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation. There are two incidents when a volunteer may be required to get a records check: 1.) When a volunteer has unsupervised access to a child when no other person 18 years of age or older is present in the same room with the child, and 2.) if outdoors, the volunteer has unsupervised access when no other person 18 years of age or older is within a 30 yard radius of the child or has visual contact with the child. School principals will identify these individuals and have then referred to the Personnel Department for a criminal records check. The background checks will be paid for by Millennium Community School.


Volunteer Guidelines

The Millennium Community School is pleased to welcome volunteers and value your willingness and commitment to the success of our students and school. Each volunteer, be it parents, grandparents, family members or interested community persons has something unique to contribute, time and talent.


As you enter the building, please sign in as a visitor (You are asked to adhere to the same guidelines as visitors.) Also, you are asked to do the following:

  1. Sign the volunteer’s letter of understanding and turn it in to the School Director.

  2. Be mindful that the staff is ultimately responsible for the students and activities taking place.

  3. Unless a conversation has taken place before your arrival, please wait to take direction from the staff member on what is needed.
