Volunteer Form


The Tolland Public Schools recognize the importance of school volunteers at all levels of schooling.  Volunteers can enhance collaboration between the school and community, broaden the school’s educational environment and ultimately enrich students’ school experience.  The TPS further acknowledges that it may, from time to time, be asked to provide learning experiences for student interns within the school environments. In recognition of the benefit of having volunteers, interns and other such non-employees providing services within the schools, the TPS supports the involvement of these individuals in accordance with suitable regulations and safeguards.

Volunteers, interns and other such non-employees working within the schools (“volunteers”) must work under the supervision of Tolland Public Schools staff.  Volunteers are held to the same standards of conduct as school staff and must observe all Board of Education policies, including applicable policies on the confidentiality of student information. 

Volunteers are required to submit to state and federal criminal record checks.  No person who is required to register as a sex offender under state or federal law, or whose name is currently listed on the DCF registry, may volunteer in the Tolland Public Schools.

No employee of the Tolland Public Schools shall serve as a volunteer in any capacity except as may be approved by the Superintendent or his/her designee through the submission of the Employee Request to Volunteer form .

Thank you for applying to be a TPS Volunteer, we deeply appreciate the offer of your time and energy.

Please complete the following forms to apply and call the school to let them know you have done so. We encourage you to contact the school system (specifically, the school in which you wish to volunteer) after seven working days to inquire about the status of your application.
