Volunteer Policy (Click here for Board of Education Policy Page and full text)
Thank you for your interest in volunteering in our schools. In Greendale, we take great pride in providing an excellent education for all students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The extensive involvement of volunteers throughout the years has contributed greatly to the success of our schools and our students.
There are many ways in which you can make a difference in the lives of our students. Opportunities exist in the classrooms working directly with teachers and students, assisting in the Health Room, making copies, chaperoning field trips, supervising at recess or at lunch time, or helping out at a PTO function or extracurricular event. Volunteering can be very rewarding – which is why many of our volunteers return year after year.
Please take this opportunity to read through the volunteer policy, guidelines and opportunities that exist within our schools. If you are interested in learning more about volunteering in the Greendale Schools, please contact Julie Grotophorst at (414) 423-2700, ext. 2703.
All volunteers are required to complete the Volunteer Application found through this link on WECAN. A background check is also required per Board Policy #353.1 for all volunteers who work one-on-one, alone with students, who accompany students on overnight activities, or who, in the discretion of the Superintendent or his/her designee, supervise students in an activity with limited oversight by school staff.
We appreciate your willingness to help the Greendale School District continue its tradition of providing a quality education for our students.
