The Novi Community School District is privileged to have the continuous support of our
parent/guardian community. While we welcome parent/guardian volunteers, it is important
that we follow Board policy 3120.09 specific to volunteers which states, “Any volunteer who
works or has access to students shall be screened through the Internet sites for the Sex
Offenders Registry (SOR) list, the Internet Criminal History Access Tool (ICHAT) criminal
history records check and the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS) prior to being
allowed to participate in any activity or program.” It is with sincere gratitude and
appreciation that we welcome the support of volunteers; however, we must ensure the
safety and security of our students and staff at each building by following Board policy.
It is also important to remind all volunteers that they shall agree to abide by all Board
policies and District guidelines while on duty as a volunteer. This includes, but is not limited
to, following the sign-in procedures established at each building, wearing proper
identification while volunteering, maintaining confidentiality of each student, reporting all
behavior concerns to the lead teacher and/or building principal, refraining from disciplining
or touching students in a corrective manner, and wearing appropriate attire for a business
If you desire to serve as a volunteer at your child’s school, you are required to complete the
Volunteer Background Check Authorization Form and at all buildings. The authorization form may be returned in a
sealed envelope to the main office of your child’s school or send directly to:
Educational Services Building
Attention: Human Resources
25345 Taft Road, Novi, MI 48374.
This process must be done prior to volunteering and on an annual basis (each school year)
to ensure the safety and security of all of our students and staff district wide.
Thank you for your support!
