Important Information about Volunteering
Planning to volunteer at Prairie Trail (or any building in the district)? Please plan ahead as you need to complete a two-step process prior to volunteering, and if you need to complete the background check, it can up to two weeks to be approved.
Step 1: Every School|Every Year – The Volunteer Handbook must be signed and turned in to the Prairie Trail office. If you have kids in other buildings, note that a copy must be on file at each school you plan to volunteer. The Volunteer Handbook can be found here.
Step 2: Every 5 Years – A background check must be completed.
- If you are unsure of your last volunteer background check, please call the Prairie Trail office (515-965-9605) to confirm the date.
- If you have completed a background check in the last 5 years, only Step 1 (Volunteer Handbook) needs to be completed.
- Need to complete a background check? Link to the online background check system can be found here.
Please be sure to bring you photo ID every time volunteer.
