KRS 161.148/KRS161.044 requires that all parent volunteers that provide direct supervision of students must participate in a volunteer training (as designated by each district) and submit for a criminal record check.
In addition, Pendleton County Schools require volunteers to:
Obtain a volunteer handbook. Handbooks are available from any of the school secretaries at the four schools, Department of Student Support office, and on the district webpage - under Parent Resources tab.
Completion and submission of three (3) forms: Application Form, Participation Statement, and Criminal Record Check. Please ensure all forms are legible for processing. They may be mailed to the address noted on the forms, returned to the schools in a sealed envelope or dropped off at the Board of Education Office.
Once forms are submitted, please allow up to one (1) week for processing. Upon approval, the volunteer will be notified by letter from the Superintendent and the volunteer's name is added to the district list which is distributed each of the schools' front office.
Active volunteer status is valid for three (3) school years. For example records processed anytime during the 2017-18 school year will expire at the end of the school year of 2019-2020.
