Volunteering at Lindbergh

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Lindbergh Schools! As part of our ongoing effort to protect and provide the safest environment for our students, in accordance with Board Policy GBEBC, Lindbergh Schools requires volunteers who may work with children closely, or have unsupervised contact with them, to have a background check. This background check must be updated at least every five years.

    Lindbergh currently has three different volunteer levels, depending on the amount of interaction with students. Levels two and three require a background check form to be submitted at least three weeks prior to volunteering.

    In all instances, the school principal approves volunteer requests and can decline any offer at his or her discretion.

    Level One: Volunteering once or twice, with no supervision responsibilities

    This may include a class party where teachera and staff are always present. This volunteer is considered a visitor and no background check is necessary.

    Level Two: Working with children closely

    Level Two activities include any unsupervised or volunteer experiences that would allow regular contact with students. This includes mentoring, field trips or ongoing volunteer positions. Lindbergh Schools will complete a criminal background check, a check with the Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division, and any other background check deemed necessary to ensure the safety of our students. The volunteer background check form must be completed. This information will be kept confidential and only used for the background check.

    Level Three: Driving

    In addition to a background check, a driver’s license check will be completed for traffic related offences. Volunteers must include their driver’s license number on the background form AND the supervising staff member must request this background check in order for it to be completed.
