IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT REQUIRED TRAINING FOR VOLUNTEERS
Are you one of our wonderful band parents who like to chaperone one of our competitions? Do you help with the uniform fittings? Do you like volunteering for our band events and activities and/or going on field trips during the school day? If you answered YES to any of the above questions and want to continue volunteering with our students, you MUST complete volunteer training.
My Volunteer Pal (MVP) program is the volunteer program for all Shawnee Mission Schools. By completing this training you will be eligible to volunteer not only with the band, but also with sports groups, clubs, academic groups, and at many other activities at Shawnee Mission South or any district school. Please see the link below for steps to becoming an MVP.
UPDATE! The MVP process has been simplified and fingerprints are no longer required.
From the SMSD website:
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN FINGERPRINTED, YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE THE NEW SCREENING PROCESS.
See new screening process below:
To support the goal of safety, the district has instituted a policy requiring background records checks for all volunteers.
In order to make the process more efficient and effective, on September 24, 2018, the Shawnee Mission Board of Education (BOE) approved the use of Validity Screening Solutions to provide background screenings for MVP volunteers. This new background screening process will take the place of the current fingerprinting requirement for MVP volunteers. In most cases, applicants will be approved and ready to serve as a MVP volunteer within 48 hours.
Thank you for volunteering in the past and we look forward to working with all our MVPs this year!
Here are the current volunteer needs! Please sign up and help!
