CHAMPS (Community Helpers Assisting Marshfield Public Schools)

Attention ALL Parents: Please read the following information…it may apply to you!

CHAMPS is the local volunteer organization for Marshfield R1 Schools. Our mission is to bring volunteers into Marshfield Public Schools to assist the teachers in meeting the growing needs of our students. Some common examples of volunteering include: Home Room Parents, classroom parties, field trips, tutoring, mentoring, Library assistant, copy room volunteer, lunchroom helpers, Junior High Socials, classroom/hall supervisors, and anything else that the schools request from us throughout the year. Each school in the district has a CHAMPS Building Coordinator who is responsible for scheduling these volunteers in their building. This letter is to provide you with the information that you will need to become, or continue to be, a volunteer in Marshfield R1 Schools. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY TO DETERMINE WHICH SITUATION APPLIES TO YOU.

IMPORTANT: THE STATE OF MISSOURI REQUIRES THAT ALL VOLUNTEERS, NO MATTER WHAT EXTENT OF INVOLVEMENT, MUST COMPLETE A CRIMINAL RECORD SEARCH. THE RESULTS OF THIS SEARCH MUST BE ON FILE IN THE DISTRICT OFFICE BEFORE YOU CAN BEGIN VOLUNTEERING. THIS POLICY IS IN EFFECT TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR CHILD AT SCHOOL.

  1. Everyone who plans on volunteering must submit a background check packet to the administration office for approval before they can begin volunteering (This packet includes the instructions and forms for the Family Care Safety Registry). These packets can be picked up at any of the school offices or the administration building, or you can request one from your child’s teacher.

  2. EVERYONE, INCLUDING THOSE PEOPLE WHOSE BACKGROUND CHECKS HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPROVED IN THE PAST, MUST RESUBMIT YOUR MISSOURI STATE CHILD ANDSENIOR SERVICES RECORD SEARCH AND MARSHFIELD R1 VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM EVERY YEAR THAT YOU WISH TO VOLUNTEER.

  3. If you plan to be involved with classroom parties as a member of the homeroom parent team you need to submit a Homeroom Parent Form, as well as, the forms listed above.

  4. If you plan only to chaperone field trips you will still need a background check on file including the Marshfield R1 Volunteer Application Form.

  5. If you are a Marshfield R1 School employee you will still need to fill out the background check packet and Volunteer Application Form. You do not need to do the Criminal Record Search.

  6. If you plan on doing any other form of volunteering in any of the schools, you must submit the forms as listed above in #1 and # 2. You must also submit a CHAMPS Volunteer Registration Form to EACH of the buildings where you plan to volunteer. This gives each CHAMPS Volunteer Coordinator the information they need to schedule you as a volunteer in their building.
