Volunteering in Ray-Pec

Volunteers are important to the success of many school district programs and activities. Many individuals volunteer to help with events and activities such as field days, class parties, book fairs, PTA dances, etc. under the supervision of District staff.

A second category of volunteers assist in ways in which they may be responsible for supervision of students in the absence of the direct supervision of a District employee. These individuals are called Screened Volunteers. Examples of this type of volunteer include Watch D.O.G.S., field trip chaperones, or individuals providing academic tutoring.

For the safety of students, staff, and volunteers, individuals who wish to serve as a Screened Volunteer MUST complete a screening process which includes a criminal background check as well as a Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Registry check. The cost of the criminal background check is $15.00 and is submitted online with the application. There is no cost associated with the Missouri Child Abuse or Neglect Registry check but the agency does require the form to be signed. Unfortunately, they will not accept electronic signatures. 

If you desire to become a Screened Volunteer, complete the process below:

Step 1: Complete the District Volunteer Application and submit the $15 criminal background check fee. 

Step 2: Fill out and print the Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Registry form, physically sign the form, and return to your child's school secretary or upload and email to RP.Volunteer@raypec.org
