Volunteer Sign-Up Steps & Background Checks

Arco Iris School welcomes volunteers in our school and classrooms.  The time our parents and community members devote to our school is what helps make our school such a great place for our kids.

To learn about specific volunteer opportunities and needs, please contact our PTO: [email protected]. Also check out our PTO page for upcoming events.

How to sign up to volunteer at Arco Iris!

1. Submit Volunteer Application (one account for each volunteer)
    • Please sign up using YOUR First, Middle, and Last name, not that of your child.
    • If you do not have a middle name please enter NMN or NMI in that field
    • In order to view and sign up for volunteer opportunities go to the VicNet website or download the VicNet app for Apple or Android
2. Background Check through Verified (ONLY needed for certain volunteer opportunities - see next section to determine if one is needed)
    • Needs to be completed every 2 years
    • Must have VicNET account (see step one)
    • A request will be sent to you via email to fill out and submit the background check form IF yours is due or near expiration
Should I fill out a background check?
YES if: 
I am a parent or family member of CURRENTLY enrolled student(s) and plan on volunteering during school hours and for events/opportunities that require background checks
I am a volunteer directed to this page by the school or related entity
My background check has expired (it has been more than 2 years) or I received a message that mine is about to expire
NO if:
I am not the parent or family member of a currently enrolled student(s)
I already submitted a background check through Verified First within the last 2 years.
I will volunteer for events/opportunities that don't require a background check

Background Check Information

Arco Iris contracts with Verified First to support our background check services. The system checks against numerous databases including, but not limited to: Department of Corrections (DOC)/Public Safety Records, State Court Records (AOC), County Criminal Court (CCO), County Sheriff Arrest (CSO), Registered Sex Offenders (RSO), National Motor Vehicle records, and Social Security verification.

The school district does not share background check results, you must complete this process for Arco Iris even if you have completed it for BSD. It takes approximately 5-7 business days to complete the process, so if you would like to volunteer for a field trip or other event, please plan ahead!
