Jenks Public Schools Volunteer Program
JENKS PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Jenks Public Schools is thankful for its many volunteers throughout our District! In order to ensure the safety of our students and to comply with school regulations, volunteer policies and procedures are required for every volunteer.
VOLUNTEER CONFIDENTIALITY TRAINING
Jenks requires all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Confidentiality Training every year. Completing these requirements gives everyone an opportunity to understand what is expected of them as volunteers and what they, as volunteers, can expect from the school. Completing this at the beginning of the school year will be beneficial to staff and teachers for whom you may volunteer. For security reasons, all volunteers must check in at Lobby Guard with their drivers’ license before beginning their volunteer service (including Field Trip volunteers.) They can do this at any site during the school year. Volunteer badge must be worn during volunteer service. Click on the link to complete the training.
RECORD VOLUNTEER HOURS
LOG volunteer hours! Enter total volunteer hours by site. Keeping them recorded monthly is recommended in order to eliminate trying to remember how many hours you volunteered at the end of the year. The recording of volunteer hours is necessary since we are required to provide the number of volunteer hours by site for the District’s State School Report Card. The documentation of hours may also assist school and district leaders in determining where additional support may be needed. Please log any hours per site by June 15. Click on the link to record hours.

There are 5 lessons for each of the elementary programs and each lesson is about 30-45 minutes depending on the program. These lessons can be taught once a week for 5 weeks, once a day for a week, or in a another format depending on what works best for the volunteer and teacher. Please contact Kathy to inquire!
