Volunteer Information

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Thank you for volunteering! Volunteers are an integral part of the BVSD community. We appreciate your desire to work with us to achieve greater service for all of the communities we serve.

    ​Volunteering in schools is a wonderful, beneficial experience that rewards not only the students and the teachers, but also the volunteers themselves. It provides an opportunity to create positive relationships and support schools in succeeding in their overall goal of student achievement. Superior Elementary understands it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of our students. To promote a safe, nurturing, and supportive educational environment in which students can pursue their educational goals, Superior Elementary will maintain a background screening program for volunteers as part of the approval process for volunteering in school activities and events.

    Adults who are interested in volunteering at SES are required to complete a background check process before starting their volunteer work. We appreciate your cooperation and support of the background screening program. We share with you the priority to ensure the welfare and safety of our students. Please contact the school office or the BVSD Volunteer Coordinator with any questions you may have regarding this program.

    Thank you for your volunteerism and helping us keep our kids safe!

      • You can now go to the BVSD Education Center to get your fingerprints done! After you have filled out the online CBI Background Check Application, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to schedule an appointment.  For most applicants, you should get your results back within 3 business days!   
    • Online Background Screening:
      • TClogiQ Background Screening
