Volunteer

We can't do all we do without CHS parent/guardian support and VOLUNTEERS!  Please see our "About" page to see volunteer opportunities across our activity tabs.

If you choose to volunteer at PTO activities you will find the experience very different than when our students were at elementary school level.  You will volunteer alongside PTO leaders, CHS Staff members as well as CHS Custodial crew - you will not be babysitting the kids.  Although we have an amazing support system at the high school, we truly need parents to sign up and get involved to make things run smoothly.

In addition to website information, please follow our social media accounts as we frequently post volunteer opportunities on those platforms as well.

Interested in volunteering at school or attending a field trip?

A person who seeks to volunteer in any capacity within Carmel Clay Schools, or visit a school building during school hours, will be subject to a National Volunteer Background Check prior to being allowed to volunteer or visit without direct supervision.  A National Volunteer Background Check must be completed every three years and the fee will be paid by the volunteer/visitor. Guardians of students who attend multiple Carmel Clay Schools only need one criminal background check. School administration will notify the person when the criminal background report is complete.

********$15.95 Fee Applies. If you have lived outside of Hamilton County or the state of Indiana, there may be additional costs associated with the background request.  Additional fees may apply dependent upon applicant address history, and verification of potential criminal history information for the volunteer and/or court access fees. SafeVisitor Solutions/SafeHiring Solutions will reach out to you via email with request for additional funds if applicable.

If an individual is arrested during the time frame of their approved status, the charges will be evaluated and cross-referenced with our background check approval list to determine if they are still eligible to volunteer within Carmel Clay Schools.

Criminal History Background Check

As part of the background check process, you are required to view a short anti-bullying video. After viewing the video, please check the box to indicate that you have completed this step.

If you have questions about this process, please contact David Woodward

Thank you in advance for helping keep our schools safe!
