Volunteers Give the Greatest Gift Of All
Parents and adult family members are encouraged to volunteer at our school and with the White Bear Lake School system. Volunteers provide a valuable service to all students and staff. Volunteers must complete an application and background check before serving students affiliated with White Bear Schools. Minnesota requires a school hiring authority to request a criminal history background check from the superintendent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on all individuals who are offered employment in a school and on all individuals, except enrolled student volunteers, who are offered the opportunity to provide athletic coaching services or other extracurricular services to a school, regardless of whether any compensation is paid. Volunteers must also abide by confidentiality and ethic standards set out by the district for all district staff. Volunteer applications are available at all school and district offices. The district will cover the cost of the background check.
