“Bee Involved”

 

Be A Volunteer In the Medina City Schools

Volunteers serve a very important role in the Medina City Schools. As a volunteer you help to support educational programming and experiences for our students.

We ask that you complete the online Volunteer Application. Individuals volunteering on a regular basis in the schools and/or whose volunteer responsibilities involve individual or group tutoring with students will need to have a Background Check. This requirement is for yours and our students’ safety. The Background Check must be completed and filed with the district prior to the beginning of your volunteer service. Please refer to the Background Check Reference list below to determine whether you must have one completed. Individuals with a felony are not eligible to volunteer in the Medina City Schools.

BACKGROUND CHECK REFERENCE LIST:

Following stipulates if you need a Background Check.

  • Volunteering on a regular basis within a school (i.e. regular being on a weekly or bi-weekly basis)
  • Volunteering one-on-one with students within a school
  • Volunteering in a group setting with students within a school
     

Following stipulates if you do not need a Background Check.

  • A speaker in a classroom
  • A volunteer for a special event in a classroom and/or school (i.e. party, COSI, dance)

 

You can get a Background Check at the Montville Townshiip Police Department, 6665 Wadsworth Road. The hours in which you can have your Background Check are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM.  The cost is $24 for the FBI background check; you can choose to cover this cost or utilize the Background Check Certificate from the district stipulating that you are a Medina City Schools volunteer. You will receive this certificate via email (unless you stipulate otherwise) once you have completed your application and submit it to the Communications Office.  If you mail your application please mail it to:  Medina City Schools, 140 West Washington Street, Attention Jeanne Hurt, Medina, OH  44256. 

Once you have established a volunteer assignment within the school district you will receive an orientation to the building, your responsibilities, and volunteer guidelines.

There are many opportunities for you to volunteer within the school district. To get started please complete the online application and review the Volunteer Guidelines. If you are not able to complete the application online, please call 330-636-3112 to obtain an application. They are also available in all school building offices.

A school district representative will contact you once your application has been received and your Background Check is completed.
